Rumor is the problem with the bike was it did not leak oil and thus, rusted out....

See, I would have guessed a 45 Harley but that was just from looking at the engine alone....and I'm no Harley expert, or even know much about them other than owning a 80 ironhead for a few weeks.....the second bike, the orange-tan ....my first thought was Northern Europe somewhere.....but now it's looking mighty Chinese....so what is it?

OK Jeff, the last, and largest, model from a company in the Northwest.
Like the Penton, they started out making 90cc Enduro type bikes in the late 60s/
and early 70/s. They called their models by some crazy, off beat names,
and ran a chrome gas tank.  Designed by a few guys here in the States,
and produced in Japan, they were really a good "budget" bike. Light, reliable,
good handling and easy to work on, many got their start with one of these.

The Dirt Squirt, The Super Rat,The Combat Wombat, just a few from Hodaka,
and this one, the mighty Thunderdog.

Hey, that was a tough one.

How about a truly beautiful bike.
If not the best looking ever.

Make, and Model Name.

The BSA-3 had the slightly tilted cylinder bank.  Kind of an odd engine, center main cap bolted in from the top.  

WLA?
