Not sure I like the wheels but the Harris frame would make it handle better than they did Back in The day

Whenever you ask Andrew Stroud about the Britten he gives you a smile before he talks
Well worth watching some of the doco's that have come out

Picked up an old banger ‘85 Suzuki GS1100G to restore and add to the harem. I bought one of these new back in ‘84 and always regretted selling it. Not looking to make look concourse, just used but not abused.

Remember reading about it  many years ago. Sad that it wasn't put into production.

Hey Snow, I bought one new in '84 too from City Suzuki in Goulburn St in Sydney. Had to sell it when kids came along in '92. Was a sweet tourer but never really had any soul I thought. Took me from Brissie down to the 1st GP at Phillip Island. Did a lot of K's on that old beast.
It replaced my GS750 which was my pocket rocket in the day. Yoshi 860 kit, O'brien custom pipes, S&W suspension etc.

The Britten makes every body smile. John was a man ahead of his time a visionary and amazing  engineer.

You will see why it makes Andrew Stroud smile in this clip.
