This bike was purchased new in 1974 by a Wagga Wagga local. The original buyer and his good friend, a German Wagga White Goods repairer by the name of Jim ?, each purchased new Desmo singles. Jim bought a 350 and his friend bought this 450. After a few years Jim sold the 350 and regretted it so much that he talked his good friend into selling his 450. Unfortunately, on his first ride the 450 kicked-back & broke Jims ankle, and the bike was put into storage and never again ridden.
