BSA B50MX / TR5 MX TRIUMPH description

I swore I would never sell this, my very last bike from collecting more than 200. My mom has Alzheimers so her care trumps my last bike. <p>


I dreamed of owning this model since I was 17 in 1973. I found this example in the California desert about 5 years ago. I bought it from original owner who swore the seat was original from the dealer. I have had 6-7 other B50MX's and 2 TR5MX's and all had the solo seat. This is the latest number bike I have had. This is the original tank for the bike. All numbers are matching TR5MX numbers. I assume that he had a desert tank on her for most of her life. I'm told that by this late date in the life of the B50MX the factory was scrounging whatever parts they could to ship the remaining bikes here to USA. I simply know this is the most preserved example I have ever seen. Frame paint looks original as does the tires. The tank has only a small imperfection as can be seen on right side lower front. This bike has the original megaphone tucked behind the plate. <p>

She fired up on 2-3 rd kick and breathed fire down the street out of her megaphone about a year ago. The folks down the street were not too pleased. I have been keeping her in my office since then. <p>

I will help with shipping worldwide all I can. I can have a crate built for $200 should you need it. Whoever gets this jewel will be very happy. Thanks for bidding. I'm open to offers.

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.
