Another rarity. 1935 Riley SOHC V8. Built using Ford Flathead internals only about 10 -12 were built.

Never seen one, also wasn't aware that of this engine. Thanks for posting.

indeed! what is that? An older air cooled GSXR engine (with lots of bling and blow!) in a newer water cooled series GSXR frame (albeit heavily modified)?

one things for sure, that rocker cover ain't coming off with the engine in situ!

Some very nice engineering in that

Edit: just saw your flickr link to the side of the image. The one that Guy Martin rode at Pikes peak......very nice!

The 1st GSX-Rs were oil-cooled. That's my guess (86'/87'ish). :)

yeah, that was marketing. we all call them "oil cooled" but in reality It is an air cooled engine with an oil cooler. It is still a finned engine. It has no oil jacket of cooling as like a water cooled engine would have. All the marketing they used in regards to spraying oil under the pistons etc is all common place and has been for years. Great old bike though, the slab sided GSXR-1100, even the orginal 750....whcih I haven't seen for years, they sold so many, but they all seem to have dissapeared (or been exported back out of Aus, but that's another story.....) Wish I picked one up a few years back when they were still cheap!

cool, thanks for the info. Just googled it after reading your post and it appears they were based on the water cooled GSX-R frame, which is what originally made me think it was, the giveaway was the shape of the frame rails around top of the engine which are exactly the shape and style of the original W series frames.

Sorry for the thread digression, 30 years as a motorcycle mechanic does that to you when you see a "special" such as the one posted!
