stuart

82BHP out of the box at 8000RPM

not bad in those times .... but still dam ugly ....

i have done some work on the look and dumped the tank seat fairing and all the plastic bits and pieces ....

i am still looking for a tank to suit but have a nice single race seat ... also have a 3-1 for it and cleaned all that up and sprayed it black ...

i am trawling the wreckers from time to time looking for something insperational but not found anything that looks good that would come close to fitting without major mods ....

i will get there .....

it is a really nice machine to ride ..... grunt to burn and very quick top end ..... i wound her out to 220Kph (well that's what the clock said but it is probably less accurate than a smiths item) .... did feel bloody quick though and still some left ....

That is just weird! Saw it on TopGear last night, I think it looks ugly but would love to try it out.
