Hi Vince,
No I didn't
The person asking is the original owners son, who has some very interesting info on how it originally left the factory (Lightning spec'd Shadow motor etc)

As with some of these things there is a story behind it so its probably easiest to say the regisration is on the DVLA system and some of the bike was known to be about a few years ago but nothing current known.

I wonder how the notion that it left the factory with a Lightning spec motor got started.

Hmmm, the article link from Vibrac says no special bits fitted or special breathing done.

I have just looked at the factory documents & build sheet for this bike and it looks like it was a std Shadow. No mention of Lightning parts etc.
