When you say 'came across this ' Kev do you mean you have acquired this?
I'm sorry but I couldn't have resisted pressing that trip reset button!

The bonnie belongs to a friend, and is not for sale. Did I buy the Lawson? hell no, out of my price range, I did talk to the owner though.

All you need now is a Bell helmet and a Member's Only jacket.

In Canada, we got the 1000, in green with the kerker pipe only in 82. In 84 we got the 1100, with a standard 4 into 2 black exhaust and a light/pearl sort of blue colour.Both were in pretty limited numbers. There was also a full on super bike race version available, with an appropriate racing resume. A buddy had one, after he finished with racing, put it on the street and promptly had it stolen.

Either one in original shape, is pretty rare around here.

I couldn't imagine what that thing is worth.
