Plenty of pictures on the web - a highly tuned version of the Rocket intended for the US market from 1965.

From the 1965 US East Coast brochure.

Is it an export only bike or were there UK versions as well?

His bike has the bigger fuel tank on it.

thanks

UK version would have been the Lightning, coloured gold, for 1965, or the Lightning Clubman.

Post a photo?
