And you thought photoshopping was new. Reverse the negative, a little cropping, white out the "Lehaitre" and walla, you got the left side and saved film.

If you look closely at the bike you might observe at where the belt is likely installed right. Sometimes in some applications backwards is right. On this bike if the track were turned around in loose conditions the tracks would displace the soil along side the track and before you'd know it the frame will be sitting on the displaced soil and you would be bottomed out and going nowhere. With the belt as installed the soil will be pinched together in the V making the most of loose condition for improved traction.
