Tour de France type (alike Bernard Consten's one).

Special equipement including:
- Mk2 buckets
- Nardi steering wheel
- Speed Pilot
- triple gas tank with 2 fast Le Mans gas tank cap
- hood straps
- shorter front bumper (to allow wider racing tires)
- HD8 carbs
- special exhaust line and pipes
- body and springs reinforcements
- front brakes air vents

May be the only LHD factory racer still around.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
