Yep really rare last model 650 with SD wheels , black engine and 2 tone tank. North American market.
Some found their way over in the 90's in the grey import explosion.

That makes me wish even more I'd kept it! I think I sold it in around 1995 to someone up Cromer way. I agree with Nicky, it was a good colour scheme.

I just checked the Vehicle Tax status of it (HCL 847Y) and it was last taxed in 2008 and is currently on SORN, so it's still out there somewhere. Wonder if I could track it down?

Ah! Didn't know that, you'd have thought if you filled in the export bit of the registration doc then they remove it from the system. I guess 10 years is a while for it to be SORNed, but possible - I'll just dream it is sitting in someone's garage looking as lovely as the day I sold it :)
