With all their known faults and issues, I still have always been a sucker for a period BSA A65 650cc Lightning... What a handsome machine!!
Poor Lannis loves those things
I came to Brit bikes late. After thirty years of airheads I bought a Commando project. They are exactly as described- fragile, finicky and engineered by the romantic poets. But for going out for a burger or thrashing down a twisty road, they are the best. I think that anyone with more than two bikes should own one.
Currently, Commandos are way over priced...If all a rider needs is a vintage Brit for shorter sporting rides, A Triumph is the better choice. They have the best parts availability, far easier to work on and less complicated...And when properly maintained, reliable for most riders..
My first two bikes were Yamahas. First an 80 then a 350. The Yamaha dealer was a long time BSA dealer as well. I remember seeing the BSAs and thinking how huge they were. Now I see someone riding one coming at me and wonder what kind of scooter is that.Pete
i would love to have my BSA441 back..
The legendary "THUMPER" - 1969 441 Victor Special!!
Currently on my work bench, 1960 BSA A10 SuperRoad Rocket engine, gotta love the name...Some changes like USA made R&R rods.... I like to touch the engines and feel the heritage, much of bike history and racing in British machines
QUOTE: "...but my favorite was his Matchless G-85 Typhoon 600 single."Fabulous machine!!
His Rocket had Burgess mufflers that would resonate at about 3500 rpm. Sitting on the back with that sound resonating in my ears, wonderful! It would sit on about 2200rpm in top at the 60mph speed limit and just lope along. Had a Lucas racing mag fitted. The bike was supremely reliable, cornered nicely and was just so stable to ride. Simply magnificent.
