They were absolutely a production bike.
In fact they held the record of fastest production bike untill Kawasaki built the Z1
I did not say they were not fast, but they didn't even make 11,000 bikes it ten years.

I guess it depends of your definition of production.

It is in terms of the standard production methods of the day.
Triumph, BSA, Norton et al were about the same.
Well...they built more, but things were different then as far as methods of production are concerned.

Will post some pics during the build later if anyone is interested. Gotta head off to work, I have to pay for the project somehow.
No way that runs...there are no wires!!!

Seriously good looking bike...
