Streetable Manx

From Cycle Magazine Nov 1973; Dean Wixom of Wixom Brothers (fairings and saddlebags) poses with the streetable (barely) Manx Norton built by John Owen of Chula Vista Cal. A generator on a fabricated mount in front of the engine is run by a belt from a pulley outboard of the primary sprocket. Start is still run and bump and the megaphone exhaust has a handlebar lever actuated butterfly valve at the noisy end.
