  • 1937 BSA Sports - Empire Star Livery1937 BSA Sports - Empire Star Livery (1937)
    I’m listing this machine for a good friend who’s not very computer savvy.. In reality, with engine number HM22, this is a "Sports" in Empire Star clothing.  The machine is in fabulous condition having been restored to a very high standard by the previous owner almost 15 years ago. Having said that - the inside of the fuel tank could use a re-coat.

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 Davidsons, Triumphs, BSAs 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.
