Sold in the U.S. for trail or enduro use, the Alloy Clipper is often mistaken for a Gold Star, but is an export version of the B34 observed trials machine. The alloy cylinder and cylinder head are of the small fin style from the earlier ZB model, used to reduce weight. The modest power that this motor produces doesn’t require a lot of cooling fins.
