        This very rare  motorcycle has been displayed for years in my collection of classic bikes in Los Angeles. It ran when parked but I recently tried to pedal it up and down the street and it only popped and farted. Good spark.

    Selling my 1968 BSA Victor 441,tried to leave it as original as possible,but also make it a safe fun bike to ride.It now is…had a local British bike shop give it the once over,tune up,carb cleaning,new cables,battery,brakes.The only resto done was a correct seat cover,the Amal grips and new tires and tubes.I was looking for the on-offroad scrambler look,the rest of the bike is mostly untouched from original,but I am no BSA expert.Bike is ready to ride now,usually starts by 3rd kick,runs,shifts and stops as you would expect for an almost 50 year old bike.Paint on frame and tank appear original.Just took it for a 25 mile cruise two weeks ago.I have title and current registration.

    Offered here is a 1970 BSA B44 VICTOR SPECIAL 441cc Square Barrel Scrambler, MOSTLY ORIGINAL and in VERY GOOD RUNNING condition.  Matching frame & engine number B44VS XD04109, stored by Previous Owner for many years, last registered and run in 2003 (up until this past weekend, that is), P.O. did the Shooting Star fiberglass tank conversion and invested in a pretty nice paint job, sadly for him the fiberglass tank leaked (now THERE's a surprise!) and damaged the paint on the left side of the tank.  I pulled it out of my storage over the weekend and decided to get it running - a quick compression test shot the needle right up over 150lbs, points & wiring checked out good, with a new N4, loaner battery from my T100R and some fresh gas she fired up!

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.

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.
