    some transparent fuel tubing that went to a solderers' acid brush which was mounted to rub on the chain. The resevoir was clamped to the bike frame. It would (paint) the oil onto the chain to keep it from blowing away in the wind like a drip system will. I had it on a sidecar rig for years and it had a needle valve to regulate the flow. The brush was mounted behind the countershaft cover to help keep it from the wind. It worked very well.
    Note that originally instead of a brush it used a soft leather applicator.

    That sure looks like a Suzuki Savage with a chain drive conversion...
    Is it?

    It's a Webley Vickers, one of only two built.

    I had to start with something. i once watched 3 Harley riders circle it before one of them was heard to say, "Webley Vickers, I remember those".

    No, nothing special, just a few old geezers making the job a little easier in their old age...
