FWIW, that is chassis number 1, originally built in 1987. As pictured in the video, it's configured about halfway between how it was originally built and how it looks today. The guy that is interviewed by the chick in the video is Kunio Asakawa, who worked for Yoshimura Japan up until the early '90's and is the guy that developed the bike for Fujio, more or less. He now has his own shop and still loooks after the bike.

That video is bootlegged off of a VHS tape that pops up for sale in Japan occasionally.

YouTube originally shut that video down. Glad to see it back up.
