Default Zephyr 550

Hullo all, think I've found a bike that'll do what I need, its a Zephyr 550. Only thing is that its a distance away so I'd be buying blind really. Everything sounds good - low mileage, bit of history etc. Only thing that concerns me a bit is the size of it and it being too small. There's none round here that I can look at to compare, and its hard to tell from a pic.

Anyone ridden one?

Ta very much for any help

Very similar in size to a gt550 if anyone you know has one of those (zephyr shares motor with later GT's)

OK - so big enough for an average (5'11 ish) person then?
