A great film. 1975 was when I made my first visit to the Factory. I note the waiting list was 2 years then - when I placed my order in 1980 I had to wait 12 years before taking delivery!

That is a brilliant clip. It reminds me so much of my first factory visit. Waiting list was 6 years for me so a used one first to tide me over. I had terrible trouble buying used...they were always gone before I could get there.....not like now; a quick check on ebay shows a couple of dozen unsold!
Never grounded my first ones either.
