BMW v twin

Postby friday » Tue Sep 13, 2016 4:42 am

can anyone id the cylinders and heads on this bike ?
it was supposedly built in 1959 and once owned by von dutch and steve mcqueen . sold on ebay 2008 . the cyl bases have been cut off and matched to the cases .
the cylinders = 12 fin , heads = 11 fins
my guess is BMW 600 isetta
cyl in line = knife + fork rods .
cheers Paris
