What is this bike?

What is this? Spoked wheels, no ears, round pegs, etc. I sure don't think it's a VN750.

I think its a Chinese clone of a Harley.....


The engine case looks like a Harley...can't read the tank emblem however. Not a Vulcan 750 for sure...


Chain drive?

The frame has the lines of a Harley Softail, but the engine cylinder heads don`t look like any H-D I have seen.

Maybe KM is right and it is Chinese clone.

It highly favors an earlier Vn800 custom or a Vn900,if that is in fact a belt drive I see and after a third look it appears as if it is a honda 750 Sprint which were chain drive with the softail frame.Definitley not a Harley

That vn800 tank badge is close in shape to the one on craigslist.
The rest of the bike is similar too from what I can see.
