Nice BSA Barn Find…

A couple of friends over in the US, bought a few BSA’s from a barn in Arkansas, most were unit singles, but in the barn was a low mileage unmolested BSA Super Rocket from 1963, still sitting on its original tyres, and complete apart from silencers and seat cover.

The clocks show just 10k miles, and this backs up the bikes originality, as can be seen from the pictures. A combination of a very dry state, and strong sunshine, have prevented rust, but badly(?) faded the paint on the tank, oil tank and tool box. But the chrome work is surprisingly good considering the bikes age. This is a West coast bike, as can be told by the round tank badge, East coast bikes had the tear drop badges.
