Full resto back in 1994, which included lots of NOS parts, mud guards , side panels, rims , plus bottom end rebuild. It has every MOT from 1981 to 2016! Talk about fastidious owners. Great sound and revs upto 8K red line really quick, but nothing like the viceral feel of the 1S

That looks stunning, always wanted one of these, nearly did many years ago, off Martin Brundle, but bought an X7 instead.

Thought you'd bought that green 500 for a minute :)

No John (florence) on the GS forums has a nice 500 for sale, but as with buses, that came up after I bought this!

I know Steve - wish i still had it (bet most of us say that about bikes we have owned previously)

Preferred the FLF to the Dyson bodykit

They also made them for the RD250/400 (my favourite) and X7
