 I am the second owner of this bike in a round about way.The original owner sold the bike to a friend of mine. He sold it to me 3 days later .He was at least 65 at the time,probably scarred him!I know there are some members that have turbos and know how they ride . A little quote from MOTOR CYCLIST - AUGUST 1983
" On the Salzburgring's long,kinked front straight, I was seeing an indicated 140 mph before terror got the best of me and I started braking for the 50mph ,180- degree bowl turn at the end.
 With two trustworthy riders of equal weight abord them,the turbo beat the GPz 1100 handily in rolling-start dragraces.The Turbowalked ahead of the 1100 by four to five bike lengths ,all the way through fifth gear"

Air-cooled transverse 4-stroke in-line four---DOHC 2 valves,shim under bucket----738cc----comp  7.8:1----DFI ,30mm venturis----37mm Kayaba 5.1 in travel.
 LCD'S for sidestand,oil pressure ,battery, headlamp failure, fuel level-all computer controlled back in 1984 -ahead of its time.

 I got with the bike all original manuals ,2x3 poster and original Shoie helmet bought with bike in matching red. The bike was purchased in Hull, Quebec
