Neat pair of specials. Unusual left side high pipe and modified TZ250/350 G seat on the left one and what looks like a Bimota style seat on the right one.

Hard to discern much more from old low res pictures. We are spoiled with modern cameras

Yes the one on the left had a TZ 350 Gback end, and was a rare Barton tuned for the road engine and pipes made by them, that lad came up that day from Radstock, down near Bath, he got knicked on the M5 going home for 14something!. one hundred and forty something miles per hour!(road block put in place.) He sent a copy of the summons into club mag!.
The other was his mate from Birmingham, ( they used to live quite close to eachother at one time.)
And I think that was either a Terry Shepherd or...names just gone.
