  • 1972 BSA Lightning 6501972 BSA Lightning 650 (1972)
    This is not a "restored" bike.  I've just taken fairly good care of it over the years.  Except for the exhaust, seat (from a '71) and right carb, all the rest is pretty much original.  Both fenders look good at first, but if you look closer, their age shows.  I could have done better on the tank when I painted it last.  I used to take it apart and clean it every winter, but I haven't since I quit riding.  2010   Last started this spring but now it needs a new battery.  Good machine.  Runs the same as it looks.  Local pick-up only.

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.
