I bought this bike in 1980 from a local motorcycle dealer when I was 18 and raced it until I was about 21 with a fair degree of success and lots of wins at clubman level.
The bike was clocked at 150mph at the old Croft circuit.
The bike has been stored for 30 years. recently rebuilt. frame needed painting. new brake seals etc. checked the engine over but it didn't appear to need anything. in excellent condition throughout and just as I bought back in 1980 minus the fairing which I have lost. although I do have some old photographs of the bike with it fitted.
Honestly I am not really sure what it is worth but I know it is an extremely rare and sort after motorcycle and it would be nice to see it go to a good home and be raced again. please call me for more information.
