Its an old SA bike, last used in reliability trials competition a couple years ago. EML frame with, from memory a 750 Suzuki in it? I can see its had a few mods and been set up for touring now.Old owner upgraded to a lighter more modern Mefo KTM now.

Heres something similar

I saw this one hit a big rock hidden in grass, break 1 or both? (cant remember)  front shock mounting bolt/s and flip over in the 24hr about 10 years ago.

G'day Hoony & LWC is on the money, my mate did buy the bike from SA. He has altered it for road use & it's a awesome bike and now on club rego. Knowing my mate it'll get a lot of use on road & dirt. Jimson

That grog cooler looks quite substantial for one but no good if you have a thirsty swinger,I just saw an old guy pull into my local IGA on an old BMW side hack set up similar to this,definetly plenty of off road capability,whish I would have taken some pics and had a chat but was in a rush.
