I well remember Teesta During the early seventies when she was often on the New Zealand coast. Her Chief at the time was a fella called Don Binns. He cam from my home town of Bradford and his real claim to fame was his preserved sports car I believe it was a Bently. Big White handlebar mustache, he realy looked the part as well as being a good Chief.

The "trials" pic is of the "Salmara" - I have the same pic in hi-res with the name very plain on the bow.
Obtained this pic in a bar in Kobe - 1968 I think.
The girls gave it to me.....weeeelll, they chased me up the MotoMachi and gave up...almost the same thing.
