Wasn't sure which pic to use or how to classify it.

When we first see this motorcycle in the series finale, "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen," the five-man Chinese band is using it and it has a sidecar.

But then B.J. paints it yellow, detaches the sidecar and when we last see him, he's riding off into the sunset on it.

andrepa, if I can get correct makes and models on both motorcycles, I'll make separate pages for them.

I haven't worked out just what the bike here is yet - I am fairly sure it is all one bike - but there is no Harley WLA to be seen. In all of the pictures the front brake is on the right - on the WLA it is on the left - and the forks don't match the WLA. Also the hand gear shift is on the right whereas the WLA shifter is on the left.

I don't think it is anything British.

Could it be another Indian, like the red one in ep. 10.13?

If you compare the profile views of the two bikes; e.g. the third pic on the lower line of thumbs on this page with the third thumb on the Indian page, there are noticeable differences.

Being used by Chinese would suggest a Dnepr M-72, but that looks nothing like an M-72. That engine looks like a V-twin, not a boxer.

A sidevalve single with inverted handlebar levers? The jockey shift is the wrong side to be a Harley AA or BA and the RHS chain drive eliminates most British stuff, suspect German or slightly further east, Russian is doubtful.

Well actually, Dnepr is Ukrainian... :D

I'll rephrase that to Soviet rather than Russian. Having a hand shift means mid 30's at the very latest, a clear shot of the crankcases would help.
