I owned one (100R) way back in the mid eighties(when dinos ruled the earth ;-)

Blue smoke

they all did that , the one I owned ( B30 BDV Z1000R ) used a litre of oil per 1000 miles , came fitted with the loud Kerker pipe as standard, fast in a straight line , no brakes & crap suspension , them were the days..........
