Nice. Yes it's OB. Someone has put some work into the notches in the cylinder fins and the lightening holes in the head. If it was in Australia it would have been raced in the dirt after its first life on the road.

Interesting to see the X after the engine number - presumably X for export. Often seen out here.

Cheers

The serial number can be seen in one of the pictures and is OE 928. (OB 600 cc engine)
