    Would like more info on the head. Very interesting seeing that original ones are getting hard to come by.

    Hi there - I do have the original head.  But these were made to increase the performance in many ways.  From combustion chamber & cooling & even the spark location.  Big improvements were gained.  Unfortunately the wonderful engineer that built "these" heads (six piece) in the 90's has since passed.  They were all a "one off".....

    Wouldn't bother me , I always found a centre throttle pedal strangely correct :)

    We say in the states these days that a three on the tree shifter is a theft deterrent because the kids today couldn't drive a stick shift to save their life!
