    That's a Marusho Lilac. I seriously considered buying one of those in 1968 but the dealer in Sydney had only brought in a couple and the potential lack of spares - which were frequently needed in bikes of the time - put me off. If that's an Australian delivered bike there's a good chance it was the one I was looking at, so how cool its that, 50 years on? They were about half the price of an R60 and looked decently built. I've still got the brochures somewhere and if I can find them I'll scan and post them.
