    Italian cycle dealer and one time speed record holder Gino Cavanna. I didn't search for all details but one Vincent site says it is a Vincent engine in a Motto Guzzi V8 frame. Here is a modern photo of the bike without fairing.

    Jerry - that is a good question with a fairing like that I guess you have to ride it out?

    Let me paraphrase (but I'll put it in a quote box for emphasis) what the original poster said about this image on the AMCA Facebook page. Thanks to member Tom Finn for sharing. Basically the OP was looking for details about this prototype that never moved forward.

    Does anyone have more info about this four cylinder on the photo found in the National Archives? Caption mentions a "Military Ordinance Motorcycle" Was in experimental stages when armistice [assuming WW II] was signed. Samples built by Military Corporation Jersey City, NJ.
    I'd be interested in more info as well. Final drive and frame are interesting.

    It resembles the Militor from this video. I understand that Militor Corporation went through an number of Branding or name changes. https://youtu.be/tVdzVUx8Dow
