Default jap motor find!

hi, I am new to JJ, I am here as a collector who likes the unusual, and exotic, and sometimes finds a item that is difficult to find info on, in my collection is a original paint 1907 curtiss v-twin belt drive, a 1904 Hercules v-twin (curtiss), a 1938 crocker v-twin small tank, a b. anzani 8-valve special (project), and a few other neat projects, I just found a jap motor, its a race car motor, but I want to put it in a 2 wheel chassie, so far I have not found any body that has seen a motor just like it, the magneto is what sets it a side from other jap motors, this motor has electron cases, tear drop magneto, hair pin valve springs, 2 amal racing carbs, I am posting a pic or 2, its motor # is wh75440, with matching case #s 19, I just found this motor at the ohio amca show, let me know what you think of it, and if it was your what would you build, I am leaning towards th joe wright supercharged oec, not an exact copy but my version, with same style duplex forks, any way enjoy!

Wow, that's a tall motor.
How the hell did they shoehorn those into Featherbeds?
