Featherbed plus Kawasaki equals Trisaki

Many old bike fans are familiar with the idea of a Triton- a Triumph motor in a Norton Featherbed frame- built as specials since the sixties. Many years ago I read an article, possibly in an 80s Classic Bike about someone who had actually installed a Kawasaki Triple in a Manx frame, heresy! 
Then I find this picture of Reg Pridmore with his version built apparently about 5 minutes after the Kawasaki H1 was introduced! I'd like to see it without the fairing, apparently the bike is still around, but being restored with the original motor. Kneeslider (scroll down to comments).
