    I have a similar bike that came may have come off Ft. Knox too. I reinstalled IR light. new carb, etc. still a hard starter but runs good.
    upload photo(s) - maybe we can compare notes. have not been able to find out much info about these bikes and what they used them for.

    Have a newer m1030B1 too, but I like the 250 better. the 650 looks "bad" with the oversized fuel tank, but too heavy for off-road riding.

    Found out more at the 2018 MVPA Convention. My bike was used by Special Forces along with the Pinzgauer. Modified at the Bluegrass Army Depot.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...6781dbddea.jpg

    I think the extra brake lever you are referring too is a Decompression lever. If you hold it in when you kick start the bike it will turn over easier.
    For every one hundred men you send us,
    Ten should not even be here.
    Eighty are nothing but targets.
    Nine of them are real fighters;
    We are lucky to have them, they the battle make.
    Ah, but the one. One of them is a warrior.
    And he will bring the others back.
