PTT was optional on the 2-cylinder '89 & '90 models, according to the old brochures in my 'library'

Hope you're not letting a bit of a wobble put you off joining 'the club'?

I'm being quiet on this thread as anything I say about SR4s is likely to be incompatible with a parent's view on what a 13yr old should be doing...

I get it, a belly is required by SR owners to aid stability. That explains why Gibbo's SR was leaping about all over the place off of the IOW. Get some weight on you son!
I've just lost 10lbs, best get that back.

Merc changed from brown band to a red & silver band around '87. It sounds like one of the early versions of this colour scheme.

Nope, with 16 stone of prime Yorkshire beef and a knackered 2 stroke clamshell hanging off the back mine went vertical, granted the engine promptly died but for 5 seconds all you could see was sky!
