That's the only twin sweater in existence and is owned and flown by an elderly lady. It was her husband's restoration project, unfinished when he died and she learnt to fly and completed the project in his honour and is now considered a Spitfire guru and very accomplished Spitfire instructor pilot. I forget her name but her story's online somewhere I'm sure. Inspirational lady.

I couldn't love my bikes any more than I do, but a machine like that really makes them look kinda pathetic, doesn't it?
