1200 were made, according to Wikipedia. It is surely one of the most beautiful and iconic bikes ever made..

We're lucky that here in St. Louis, Donnelson's Motorcycles has one in their moto museum. It's pretty cool.

Sell your wife and any kids you might have, it's definitely worth it, I just put an ad on ebay for a slightly soiled wife if anyone's interested .

The little plastic model looks cute too, but those blokes are nuts, they even want 13,000 quid for a trophy 1200!

I think they've been drinking far too much turpentine.
