    Hi Mike.

    I purchased it from First Blood Productions about 6 months before the movie came out. They had two of these purchased new, both had the signal lights removed and extra bars added for protection by the time it was available for sale. They were unable to provide the signal lights as they had been lost someplace, so I always had to ride it using hand signals.

    When I bought the bike it cost me $1100 and it had 500 km's on it, but it had been ridden very hard and not broken in properly, so the bike was always very hard to start. It was kick start only and I had to jump on it for quite a while before the engine would warm and it would start. I never took it to a dealer to look at.

    I rode it a couple of years, a bit of street riding, but mostly dirt, out near the Vancouver Airport where there used to be sand dunes, that area has now been turned into a second runway. I learned how to ride on this bike, and riding in the dirt was a quick way to do it. Any questions?

    Doug.
