My fav bike (the RD comes a close second of course!)
Here are a couple of pics of my old kettle - the first in 2020 and the second when I bought it in 1981.

I had one in the same colours.  It had a Dresda box-section swingarm and Allspeed matt black three into three pipes and was a brilliant bike.  Looking back at all the bikes I've owned I'd say it stood head and shoulders above the rest for delivering more than expected, most bikes have been over-hyped by the press and were disappointing, but I bought the kettle on a whim and it was a great experience.
