These Harris Matchless G80s never used to appeal to me until I had a go on a Rotax-engined bike and realised what a sweet motor it is. Personally I shouldn't like to have one without an electric start and have to use a left hand kicker so the later model with the leccy boot and twin discs would be the one to go for. Transplant a 52 horse 604 motor from a CCM and you'd have a really fun bike.
There's a good G80 write-up on Real Classic.
