Mystery bike


  1. Nobody get it yet? Probably 'cos Stuart is on holiday at the moment.

  2. The manufacturer is Horex of Switzerland, the model is unknown to me.

  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.
