    Except for being left handed, I think my R8 looks like the "Stanley Burst".

    he said they only make the true historic not the Reissue VOS anymore. The true historic are essentially the same thing but a huge price jump? Not sure but mine was the last one available for dealers to purchase from the historic Reissue R8 stock

    My new 2016 R8, closest in BOB to my eye, is 8 5388. I don't know if it's the print on my copy of BOB but there is an orangey hue to all the pictures, they don't loo like a true representation of the actual colours to me.
