Beta TR33: a classic purchase ?

Was tempted by the Beta after enjoying riding the TR240 twinshock, so decided on a purchase

The bike was the second of Beta’s aircooled monos, following on from the TR-32. It has a similar motor to the earlier models, though slightly more bulky. Pretty sure the bike is a TR-33, but looking at the specification not so sure now, partly because the TR-33 is meant to have a rear disk brake; this one has a drum brake. The photo of a TR-33 I did manage to find seems to match the bike, with rear drum and the rather small exhaust rear box.

The engine on the bike is really rather good, with the same sweet sound that comes from the TR240. There is plenty of power from what (I think) is a 240cc motor.
