  3. OK, time to put you out of your misery. The bike is a 1958 Hosk DB 500. Hosk were one of the 200 or so small Japanese bike companies operating in the 50s, and the DB was a close copy of the Horex twin (so Tony nearly got it). Hosk were bought by Yamaha, and the DB led towards the development of the XS 650 twin.
