The speedmaster was a great bike line :) would love to see the work. 10 years back i stripped and rebuild a Rocket3 very rewarding to do..
We had a test ride on a Rocket 3 some years back . Fantastic balance ,unlike the speedmaster which had a slightly offset engine. I am sorry I have just noticed your post.
Garry went out by himself one Sunday and a woman just hung a right in front of him . Totalled the bike,never saw her again . From the Police photos it looked like the forks were bent under the frame. Spose I could have visited the garage where it was taken to,but Garry was in Queens Med Notts miles away for over a month ,so I was a bit distracted. They nearly lost him three times in the first day.
