Sure it wasn't a Honda? https://www.oldbikemag.com.au/honda-cb1100r-machine-mission/It was a Yamaha, he reckoned they only made 250 or so, just enough so they could race them at Bathurst or something (could be talking ****). It was 80s looking, with a square headlight, and two exhaust pipes either side of the bike. Had a blue tank with red and white stripes. A road bike. A bloke made him an offer on it when he seen it at garage sale (wasn't for sale at time) and my dad, being my dad who could not be trusted at garage sales (he once sold the table he had everything sitting on, so then just had to put all the crap for sale on the ground for the rest of the day) took it fist offer.
I don't know much about bikes but I really liked how that one looked. Distinctive.
Details/Pics of the Premier?
Not a garage guy either, I try to get mine out at least once a week, but haven't been able to for a fortnight now and it's biting at me. I've no doubt with regular running it would be daily material, but the longer those things sit the touchier they get I reckon. Mine is currently insured for 20k and once I spend 10k on panel beating and respray I'll up it to 40k. Not that I would ever sell it, being my great grandfathers car it has a value that a price can't be put on to see it with someone else.
1971 HG, 186, 5 speed floor shift, Lovells upgraded suspension all round, ventilated discs (front). Was bare metal resprayed about 15 years ago but then sat at my parents places on the coast and that kind of stuffed all the chrome on it. Solid car, beautiful to look at and fun to cruise but an absolute nightmare in the city and surrounds.
