Hello Newby here
I have had a V1000 for nearly ten years.
Its Red/Nickel with Gold wheels. Although registered 1/08/82 its "new"-having done now about 17 miles. I have all the delivery paperwork. Doesn't look like it has any EN mods. MB helped me re commission it a few years ago and its a runner - and totally original ie tyres are unworn etc-that said the nickel is a little scarred and I had to seal the tank.
Now the odd bit Its frame is 082 and engine 182. So if you look at the register there are two engine 182's out there!?
