Any other clarification and significance of this “series one” would be greatly appreciated.
Im no expert (far from it) but the story you tell i have read before.
the bikes quite rare i think.
Please dont "bob it" chop it or any other such rubbish.
my only concern is it looks as though that decal is in too good condition for year.
Has it been re-sprayed or kept in a museum.
you are a lucky man
