Looks like the rear frame/swingarm/seat post is hinged under the engine and maybe has a shock where the top frame rail would be. Not sure what the engine is mounted to or if the ammo can is the gas tank.

Bringing back memories of the 1960's ads in the back of Popular Mechanics magazines.

I thought that Heathkit was cool - until I clicked TW-Brian's link and saw it fitted with a ski on the front! That bike is totally awesome!

I bet a few folks failed to click on that link below the picture. I know I did. Cool, thanks bro!

Riding my brothers Heath Kit gave me my start. Also because of the wide rear tire I could come to a stop. Lay back on the seat and put my legs on the handle bars with out putting the kick stand down.

here's my other TW, almost identical to my 2006 tw200 except much stronger motor and radically improved suspension:

I bit more weight but you can still pick it up and carry it wherever it may not go.
That's either a Rokon or the Russian-built copy of one. You know, I was in the process of buying a Rokon in July 2020, and even spoke to Tom Blais, the company's CEO, when I came across an article comparing the TW to the Rokon. Then I started doing mad stay-at-home research on this little Japanese bike; then I ran across this forum. Spent hours reading all the interesting posts and soon felt that this bike, and this community surrounding it, was right for me. As a newbie, I hope it continues . . . .
