    Has anyone ever seen a Velo with this installed, or know of anything about it?

    Well the Ducati arrangement with really direct actuation with the ohc is one thing, but you do wonder how that desmo operated by push/pull rods could ever hang together at revs! Be fascinating to learn how it went.

    Yeah, my first reaction to think that it looks slightly precarious! Very interesting though.

      A search through the motorcycle mag of the sixties will reveal all, I remember the item and I seem to remember Bruce Main Smith tested it
