The ERLA (Desmodromic)


 
 

This machine was also made by Erich Lawrenz and was just finished before he sadly died. The engine on this particular machine is made from a Godden crankcase, and on top, the head from a Desmo 916 Ducati engine.

In the head there are 4 Valves, whilst the cylinder is home made and furthermore, it is watercooled. For a clearer explanation of what is meant by a "Desmodromic" engine, take a look at the Frank Arnott design.

NOTE: See also the ERLA/Jawa Iceracer
