Sure, that's the ex Joe Simpson, ex Marty Dickerson, supercharged Lightning. It resides in a museum in Solvang, CA, a few hours from LA. Joe Simpson was the first from the US to purchase a Lightning. Coincidently, it is one digit off the Dearden Lightning. Look closely, you'll see that the front axle goes through the fork blades a little higher than most, to lower the front end.
