A great opportunity to acquire a very rare UK produced model 78 that has remained on these shores since new. Supplied with boxes of history including all manuals available, numerous invoices, correspondence, technical articles, magazine features, etc. Offered in fine mechanical condition and ready to use. On the road, the V8 is just full of torque and gear changes are not really necessary as it just pulls from very low revs. In regular use by its current owner who raced Vintage motorcycles until recently, the 78 has been well maintained and all necessary mechanical work to keep it on the button has been done.

Ready to use and enjoy; try it you will like it; we did!!
