Hi Chris. I had a B1 from new in 1976 until 1980 and loved it, always regretted letting it go. Absolutely agree how under-rated it was, but sadly motorcycling has always been subject to b*** ***t and fashion nonsense, it still is. Most that criticise particular bikes have never even ridden one, or at least not for far enough to find out what it’s really like. If you look elsewhere on this site you will see that I’ve got hold of a 1978 B3 from the USA and I’m having it restored to as new, but to UK spec rather than US, it’s currently with Mavericks Motorcycles in Wales. I can’t wait to ride it, but Lord knows when that will be with current CV19 problems!
