Insubstantial Two Wheel Tuesday: Kriedler-Van Veen 50cc GP Bike

Circa late 70's, early 80's. Approximately 55kg soaking wet. 50cc single, 18k RPM, ~21 HP, 90+ MPH top speed. In the video below, note that the tach doesn't even start til 8k RPM.

Van Veen was also known for Wankel-powered street bikes, arguably the best of the era. More on that subject later.
