I have recently re acquired this MK 1 GB in September 2018, having initially acquired it in September 2006 locally in Hemmingford Grey, Cambridgeshire.
I sold it in early 2013 following the death of my father, it then spent the next 5 years on the Isle of Man
it returned from the Isle of Man to Norfolk and as they say everything else is history!
The engine is currently with Rupert Ratio to cure some oil leaks and prevent it from burning a little oil
