    There is just something about an inline 4…….

    Of very great beauty about most motorcycles is the guts are open to atmosphere and to the critical eye of all. Everyone appreciates the visual beauty of mechanical parts and how they are coupled together to bring great joy and purpose to the rider. This bike is over 100 years old but just sitting at the curbside still takes your breath away.

    That bike is sooooooo beautiful……..

    One great looking bike and with the inline.

    Who was the first ingenious inventive, cunning , clever person that developed the fuel and oil tank in frame. Looks like this may have been the first one.

    Arlen Ness did it in the 80’s with his digger bikes

    I assumed someone else of late [ 90’s [ clamed fame of it . Pays to do patent reserch..

    All of Bob Schantz’ desirable bikes were sold in Los Angeles shortly after his death years ago, only the dregs remain.
    When you comment “the first know in existence” did you mean “the earliest example extant”? Too bad it has suffered from a “Pebble Beach” restoration.
