# 44 looks like an H2 Kawasaki yet it appears to have drum brakes.
Is it a waterbus or are drum brake conversions required for vintage racing in the Netherlands?

As an owner and rider of multiple triples I know that to make any BMW handle as well as the Kawasaki or Suzuki triples you have to first let the air out of the tyres.

In Europe a yellow number plate means 500cc, a 750 would have white plates. The blue plate on #34 in the backgound means it's a 350.

Maybe #44 is a 400 Kwacker? Did they have drum brakes?
