    First this is killing me to put this up for sale but a move into a new house forces this sale. Most of you already know what you are looking at and how rare they are. The spares manual that came with this bike calls out all the chrome parts on this bike as available from the dealer and by the patina of the parts and bike they have the same age indicating to me they where installed on the bike as new ether by the dealer to help sell it your ordered by the customer.

    1969 BSA Rocket 3 A75R - pulled from basement of church, engine and frame numbers are matching, also both halfs of crankcase casings #'s match, motor moves freely with compression, gears shift OK, has front and rear end from 1970's Trident. Engine cases, rocker boxes and other parts are chromed ( see pics ) and rear frame loop for seat mount has been cut about 2.75" shorter from shock mount back - probably to accomodate a different seat but  not sure - easy fix - just weld in new piece of tube on each side of loop. Some tabs and mounts look to be incorrect and will need to be fixed - again something easy to do.

    To continue selling my British collection is a 1969 BSA Rocket 3 I have all receipts From Raber Cycle in San Jose Ca.  The receipts total more than the reserve price. It was built to ride but has been sparingly since being restored. It has had most everything replaced mechanically but is mostly original with the exception of stainless spokes, Boyer Ign, and 5 speed of coarse.  This bike starts on first or second kick always.

What’s Old Is New Again – Video

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 00:00:00 -0700

There’s something distinctly cool about old British motorcycles. From the wire wheels, the minimal bodywork, and the exposed engines which give off a thunderous bark, I’ve always loved looking at old Triumphs, BSAs and the like from the 60s.  I’ve never owned one though. The reason is simple: old British bikes are needy little maintenance machines notorious for the odd oil leak.

The Fonz Never Really Rode a Motorcycle!

Tue, 02 Jun 2009 00:00:00 -0700

According to the “King of Cool” himself, “The Fonz” (Henry Winkler) never actually rode any motorcycles during the ten year Happy Days television run.  Winkler, never rode a bike in real life either, he has dyslexia, which made it difficult for him to co-ordinate the clutch, throttle and brake.  Instead, the bikes (Harley Davidson’s, Triumph’s, BSA’s were used) were mounted on a piece of wood with wheels to make it look like he was riding, even though I am not shocked, I am a little disappointed… You can watch the interview with Winkler, the famous motorcycle jump “The Fonz” made over 14 trashcans and a bonus “Jump the Shark” video after the jump.

Man Builds Sidecar from Bathtub

Thu, 23 Apr 2009 00:00:00 -0700

Back in 1997, an unusual motorcycle appeared on the front page of the Bristol Evening Post. Unable to afford a costly traditional sidecar, bus driver Alan Iles of Bedminster opted to build his own, using a bathtub. Twelve years later, the 1959 650cc BSA is still going and has been ridden all over Europe to help raise money for Cancer research and various charities, for which he has raised thousands of British pounds.
