Friday bike

Having a Honda CL 350, I often look at various Internet groups and fora concerning 60s/70s Honda twins, and the most sought after is the CYP77, a Police version of the 305cc CB77.
As far as I can find out, these were produced between 1963 and 65 (?), and Honda tried to sell them to various Police forces throughout the world. Not sure if any country other than Japan actually used them (anyone know?)
Most unusual feature was that the siren was cable driven and the drive was taken from a knurled roller that pressed against the sidewall of the rear tyre (like a bicycle dynamo).
