Steve Church shows us his late brother’s XLV750 R (RD01) which was bought new in 1985 in Elizabeth Street, Melbourne and Steve’s owned it since 1994. And then look at the two-up pic (below). Steve says: “This is my late Brother Jim and me on my Canadian Import GT550 in 1977. It left half a mile of blue smoke behind it wherever it went! This is in Kempston, near Bedford in 1977. Steve bought for £500 from Ted Rymans in Bedford.”
