That is the heavy, machined flywheel.

Ditto to what Charlie said.

My concert has the same type of flywheel except my flywheel has the starter teeth directly machined on the flywheel, not a separate starter ring--changed years ago.

Thanks John, Its  76 that had only 26000 km on the clock when I got it , Teo Lamers brought it in from Italy for me 3 years ago and never missed a beat until the clutch throw out bearing seized the other day  when I pulled the clutch in to back into the kerb the adjuster spun itself all the way out to full adjustment and I had no drive, But thats what wives and trailers are for . I did adjust the clutch when I got the bike but perhaps I didnt do the lock nut up tight enough .

I didnt like the convert silver so I repainted it. Ray

I echo BBR's words, that's an awesome looking paint job. :thumb:

Just a WAG,but I'm thinking it was possibly inspired by the old BMW R90S Orange burst?
