   Thanks for the link.

   Other interesting stuff there such as IT175D,IT250/400, but sadly it's subscription only and the subscription system is down.
   Will keep an eye on the site though.

Stupid computer; the preview had these perfectly line up side by side ::). Had to make two post because the stupid computer went into meld down :(.

If anyone want a copy I can email - pm me.

If you get all fired up and want to buy one, there are two on EvilPay at the mo. One is the very rare 4 speed/510cc model ::).
