Maybe in Europe they call covers "cases". We could say "engine block" or maybe just that thing that is left when you remove all the removeable parts of the engine.
I've been playing around with bikes for 47 years and have always called the parts that "encase" the "crankshaft" the crankcase and I'm fairly sure it's a universal term.
"Engine block" is more of an auto term where the cylinders & crankcase are cast as one unit.
I prefer the silver crankcases and polished side covers combo on the Bonnies which is more of a "classical" look and that's what I chose when I built an engine for my T100.
