    No reserve price.  This is an unrestored original.  I purchased it for my son - I wanted to start him off with a full metal bike. He rode it around on logging roads when I lived in Virginia.   Most everything is original.  The engine was originally all black and I replaced the piston/rings, installed new bearings, and replaced the primary chain adjuster.  The spark plug threads were stripped so there is a Helicoil installed in the head.  Nothing else has been done mechanically except for rebuilding the carburetor and normal maintenance (points, plug, drive chain, bearings, etc). The rear stop lens is a repro as is the WIPAC horn/high beam on the handle bars.  All paint is original with some spot touch-ups.  There are a few dings and a small crack on the left fiberglass panel (with touch-up) - see picture.  The tank is steel and there are no dents - but some wear and tear.  No rust in the tank and no gas leaks.   The bike came with a vintage air pump (does not work and not original) attached to the frame behind the oil tank. The handle bars are the original "buck horns".  The tires are original and show it!  Most chrome is in good shape, but there is some rust on the wheel rims and pitting on the fenders.    My son out grew the bike long ago and it is residing as one of 5 motorcycles in my garage. I need to reduce my portfolio as I am straining my wife's patience.  It is high compression and not forgiving to my geezer knee when kicking it over.  I don't know the mileage (I put 10K in because eBay insists on a number) because the speedometer didn't work until recently rebuilt. The mileage (237) on it reflects the last year or so.  I only ride it a bit around DC - but I am more comfortable on my other bikes.  The bike starts easily, idles OK,but runs a bit rough in the low range - can be sorted out.  Good bike for someone as a first restoration.  And of course it wouldn't be British if it didn't leaks some oil.   The motorcycle has matching numbers and a clear Virginia title.

    Read this first: I am listing this BSA for a friend of mine who does not do much Ebay stuff.  The bike is located in a small town in west Texas, called Alpine.  All shipping arrangements need to be made by the winning bidder.  He will do what he can to help with that arrangement.  There may be a chance of him coming to the San Antonio, Tx area if that would help anyone out.  There is a $500 deposit made within four days.  You can email or call the owner directly if you have questions about the bike, shipping, payment, etc.  Any questions sent via the ebay link will get a response with his email address.  Thank you, and good luck with your bid! There is a video of the bike running!  Contact the seller and he will email you the video.  A good running, good looking, kick-only 250cc British single.  This bike is  a runner, not a concourse show piece.   It bears minor dents on the fenders  and has some bits of paint knocked off the tank.  It has the original formed metal tank.  The bike has been painted, it was originally bright orange.  While the straight bars offer a great riding position and a great look, they are not original.  Also at some point the engine was stripped, BSA painted this years engine black.  The exhaust is partially original but the actual muffler is a replacement, this model came with a much longer peanut style muffler, thus the bike is fairly loud.  There is some surface rust on an area of the front rim.  The bike is missing its chrome grab rail witch came up over the back of the seat.  Not certain if a center stand was stock, but this one doesn't have one.

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.
