I sold one in that colour a couple of years ago. It had a UK frame with an engine that came from the US. Carbs are sealed and it had the pairs system on it. The flywheel was not standard and it went like stink. Thought it was the same one until i checked

Different bikes from different members.

Both very nice though, especially the second one with the high level exhausts!!!
