Disassembly of the RC166 250cc 6-cylinder

For the gearheads and those into historic race bikes, here is a video (in Japanese) of the complete disassembly of the 1966 RC166 250cc 6-cylinder GP bike.
During engine disassembly, notice how the camshafts (gear driven of course) are tapered towards the ends. Saves weight and reduces rotating mass for quick revs.

Wow, the write up was so interesting I had to start the video over again. Amazing feat for 1960s technology.

P.S. I sent you PM Sub....no reply back yet.
