Found a BSA...part II... '67 B44
« on: Apr 25, 2013, 18:05:27 »
"You want a 500 single to go with your 650 twin?" was the question last night!
 
Chances are good my BSA escapade has lead to another. A fellow Lodge Member has been looking for a modern bike, like say a Honda Shadow V-twin, to get back into riding and I have been helping him with leads. Last night he said he contacted an old (65 ish) mate who was heavy into bikes back in the day. Offered to GIVE him an "older BSA 500 single" that has been stored in a heated garage for 20 years! Seems he bought it to restore and never got around to it. Too old of a bike for the guy I know from Lodge, and he is going to pass it onto me! I said $200 sight unseen to help towards his bike purchase.. he will get back to me soon.
M20... B33... Goldstar??? My mind is reeling!
Hope I didn't jinx it but had to tell somebody ::)

Probobly a Shooting Star (like the pile of garbage Brad mentioned). Its now "yard art" at our buddy BSA Joes house. Goldwings, vintage Brit bikes... You do like to stack the deck against yourself don't ya?
