Hey madkaw, you got it right :)
It's the 1976 Van Veen OCR 1000 (made in Holland), with a twin rotor rotary engine. It used a compression ratio of 9:1 and produced 100PS (which was quite a lot back then).
Congratulations man!

Here is the original picture:

Darn!
Suddenly thought - It's a Van Veen!
But Madkaw beat me to it.

Was there ever a "successful" rotary bike built?..

How many Van Veens did they sell?

Didn't... hmmm... Suzuki make a factory rotary? *quick trip to Google* Ah, yes. The RE5. I don't know if you'd call a 2 or 3 year model run "successful" or not...
