SUPER RARE 1977 Hercules W-2000 Wankel Engine Rotary Motorcycle

1977 Hercules W-2000 Rotary Motor - (Wankel Engine)

Hercules W-2000 Rotary Wankel 1977
fuel: gas       transmission: manual

This Hercules W-2000 has been stored inside climate controlled storage for many years. Recently I purchased it from a fellow motorcycle enthusiast who had it as a collector and was displaying it at a conversation piece in his garage. I rescued it and brought it back to life. I cleaned the carburetor, installed a new lithium Iron Shorai battery in it, did some tuning and it runs very nice!!!

The motorcycle runs and shifts through the gears beautifully, smooth and was a very comfortable ride. Brakes work great, all lights, horn, indicators work great. No abnormal sounds or hiccups.
Very clean original motorcycle. Low miles, late model (last year!!!) with oil injection, all original.

The chrome is in exceptional condition and there is no pitting or rust. The paint is in excellent condition with only a few minor blemishes (the white stripe on the right side of the gas tank have a minor spot where the striping is missing. The side panel emblems show some aging.

Gauges and switch housing are in excellent condition and seem to work as they should.

There is no fading to any of the components. This motorcycle has been stored inside and has been well taken care of.

Turn signals, lenses, and other plastic pieces on the bike are in excellent condition.

This bike is very complete including the air box, original tires (rear tire is getting low on tread), exhaust/heat shields, side panels, oil tank covers, fenders, rack.... all of the parts that tend to be missing off of an old motorcycle are still on the bike and are in excellent condition.

This motorcycle belongs in a museum! This rare motorcycle would be great for the collector, antique hoarder, or enthusiast.

Has a rear rack which is probably a very rare factory option.

May be missing a lower bracket to hold the side panels on???
