Body types

Post by Harlynbird » Mon Sep 07, 2020 6:15 pm

I see that the some type 2 or 3 models have a groove in the fiberglass body corresponding to the exhaust pipe, but others not. Can anyone tell me if that’s a current feature and which model has it?
I seriously regret selling my lovely old type 1 a few years ago, and the itch never goes away, maybe time for a scratch!

Type 2 has the groove, type 3 hasn’t, hope this helps.
Type three also has a removable rear end, makes it easier to service the rear wheel. Also, not having the groove along the sides it’s easier to position the side exhaust.

And marginally more room for a foot at the throttle in RHD without the T2 body swage line.
Type ones are now available again too. To order that is.

A few Type 2's had the groove removed as a special order as requested by the customer. Either to gain slightly more internal space or purely for appearance.
