No 36 which I imported from the US, i bought the side panels first and they had stickers on--that was why i contacted the seller and ended up with the bike, or what was left of it, unfortunately not the rare cases

Never been sure on dates, although I have bought NOS tanks over the years from DSS, and in sealed boxes, and none ever had the "Preserve Nature" stickers on the tank. My guess is early bikes had them fitted by dealers as U.S. health and safety crap became more prevalent, as I gave noticed that they are not very well applied, just slung on as an afterthought. I have never fitted one to a NOS tank as I couldn't see the point as crash helmets have been compulsory in my riding lifetime.

I see no mirrors  ;) Did they come with mirrors  ;D

Well I am not putting the stickers on Menno's immaculate paintwork 'till I am sure and Checked with Chris Rushton 'cos he's got one even earlier VIN than mine. Easy to apply ... may risk paint removing.

Well the jury's out on it .. Bryan kindly provided me with stickers so I will probably just leave them with the bike docs.

Think that's Bo Derek (no relation) on that pic ! Mine is Derrick !

New tanks provided as spares did not have the sticker, it had to be ordered separately, same as cap and tap
