If you enjoyed our story on the Hercules W-2000, the world’s first production rotary-powered motorcycle, you’ll dig photographer Ken Richardson’s video and outtakes from his shoot of the rare, low-mileage 1976 Model we profiled here. Enjoy!

LEAVE IT TO ME TO MISREAD THE VIDEO TEXT. SORRY ABOUT MY CONFUSION ON YOUR BEING THE PHOTOGRAPHER. I MUST BE 67 GOING ON 87. BUT IT'S STILL A VERY NICE PRESENTATION OF A CLASSIC BIKE. THANKS FOR YOUR EFFORTS!

I JUST REALIZED THAT IN MY PREVIOUS COMMENT I FAILED TO COMPLIMENT THE BEAUTIFUL CONDITION AND SMOOTH RUNNING OF A DEFINITE CLASSIC BIKE. MR.KEN, IF YOU HAD TO DO A RESTORATION ON THIS ROTARY, IT WAS SURELY AN OUTSTANDING EFFORT THAT LOOKS EVERY BIT AS GREAT AS NEW. CONGRATS! I'D LOVE TO RIDE SUCH A DIFFERENT ENGINE DESIGN BIKE. IF IT WAS AVAILABLE NEW IN TODAY'S BIKE MARKET AND AT A REASONABLE PRICE, I BET IT WOULD SELL TO ROTARY FANS APPRECIATING A DIFFERENT STYLE ENGINE BIKE. THANKS FOR GIVING US A LOOK AND LETTING US HEAR IT RUN. SOUNDS REAL SMOOTH RUNNING.

AHHH, MY SECOND COMMENTS ENTRY. 1ST ONE WAS KILLED. THIS WAS A NICE LITTLE VIDEO ABOUT A BIKE BUT THE VIDEO WAS HURT BY COMPLETELY USELESS DISTRACTING MUSIC. WHY? 100% OF THE YOUTUBE VIDEOS ABOUT BIKES WITH MUSIC PLAYING WHILE THE BIKE IS BEING RIDDEN ARE SAD AND A WASTE. THANKS ANYWAY, BUT NICE TRY.
