Look at www.bikepics.com and look for something similar. Looks like an early 70's model with an aftermarket fairing.

Or, run the plate (any cops on the board?) and see what it comes up registered as.

Looks like a V7. Definitely a nice find.

Looks like the police model had a similar fairing, so maybe it is stock. Do an ebay search, you'll surely find something about it.
