I have dreamt about riding this bike since I first read a test about it in "Das Motorrad" magazine way back in 1992. Finally I was able to get one and I love it !! It is a completely different bike than the PC 800's ,but for shorter blasts on the smaller roads in the area.. it's just a thrill !!!! I found it for sale just south of Cologne in Germany and collected it there September 13. 2000 with only 7225 miles on the clock. It has production No: 55 and was buildt in June/89!
The tail-less Manx cat, that also originated on that beautiful island in the Irish Sea, has a purring that reminds of the thumper. So I think that it's cute to name the bike after the Manx cat.
THE OLD RACERS!
