Wonder if it's something from the factory for shows, etc. Or perhaps a dealer with a wrecked bike and a long, unoccupied winter?

because it's such an early assembly, my vote is a factory show/education piece

extremely cool

How about this RR Merlin engine at the National Air Force Museum of Canada which has bevel drive camshaft coolness?
