It is a 2004 Husaberg frame with a 700cc engine from a German sidecar racing hop-up shop. This is the site for the engines:

Likely they are extremely low revving things. I think that re-branded "Maico" outfit that was selling those 700/1000cc engines produced their peak power around 3500 rpm. Think tractor engines.

Yup!

Just a big Maico motor, go look at a 83 Maico 490 & you'll see the resemblance.

Don't know who developed that motor Maico or Zabel? But the 700cc is a low revving torque motor, I heard from a friend that the 620 would rev out & pull like hell! he said that it was too much for a MX track!

The 760 Maico's were built to compete with BMW 800 GS's in the ISDT from what I was told.

Only 6 or 8 were built If If remember right & it used a Porsche piston! They also build some 504's -508's don't know much about them.

I remember Super Hunky rode one of the 760's at an enduro or ISDE qualifier or something.

He did a great story on it in only a way SH could. Wish I could find that issue in my stacks of old mags.

That thing has a Zabel engine, commonly used in sidecar motocross bikes. In other words it's designed for people who are absolutely bat shit crazy and insane.
