It looks to me like an old Ural or BMW, but I can’t say for sure.

Is it an Indian?

My partner thinks it’s a British bike, but isn’t able to narrow it down any more than that.

An old Triumph?

It has to be a Ural or BMW from the 50s’. Indian, Triumph or Vincents didn’t have horizontally opposed cylinders.

@Cardinal Thanks for the educated guess. I assume by the rounded tank that it was originally intended for military use. I want to say Ural, but I’ve never seen one without the sidecar.

I thought it looked military. The fuel tank is rather large. Maybe somebody slapped an ElectraGlide tank on an old German military bike.
