The earlier TLS brake has wider shoes, a good thing. And it has a sturdier looking front mudguard mounting. Not a bad brew. Plus point for taking the ignition switch off the side panel, thats a pain if you use panniers, I wonder how the switch plays with the air box?
I shouldnt try to second guess TT, maybe he meant something to do with the rubber mount theory?
The BSA script on the strobe cover is a unique item. Same as a Rocket 3?
I dont see why someone would fake all this, looks genuine to me, wonder what the nos are?
if you mean frame engine numbers they match and are as above.
