I have had a couple of BSA’s in the past, and it has really been a bit of a love hate relationship with them all. I like the design, and style of the bikes, but right now I hate the fact that so many have been worked on by people who should never be allowed to own tools!
The 67 Thunderbolt was easily my all time favourite BSA, and one I still regret selling.

I met up with my friends Mark, and Geoff & Sara, for my annual pilgrimage to the Netley Eurojumble. The reported heavy rain never turned up, and all we encountered was one short shower, before the clouds broke, and the sun shone on the righteous.
I managed to find a few nice parts for my Norton project, and nearly came home with the Enfield that is seen in one of the pictures leaning against the van. it was cheap enough, but I decided against it at this time.
There were some nice bikes there for sale though, my favourite and the one I would have most liked to own was the NSU, £6000 for a non running bike seemed a bit steep though.
So that was it, all in we had a great day, I found some cool parts, including a set of NoS Craven pannier fittings, an ex-works exhaust can for the Norton, and a nice used set of seat springs, I could have spent a lot more though, as there were loads of Norton parts and engines there this time.

I thought I would post a couple more pictures of my old bikes, now winter is closing in here, dark mornings, and getting dark when I get home from work, I am not getting as much bike related stuff done as I would like, either with the camera, or actually on my bikes. Having said that, there are still some bike related days coming up.
My old R65LS, this bike was a non runner, I bought for around £200 at one of the Kempton bike Jumbles.
The Honda was a blast to ride, a little noisy with its Laser comp silencer, but huge fun out in the lanes..
The Road Rocket, this is a bike I should never have given up on, but to be fair, it was a money pit, I did loads to this bike, and it repaid me by playing up all the time, the vibration was dire at anything over fifty, and in the end I just had enough, so off it went.
Finally my M33 and Pav 41, I think the picture speaks for itself..
I have a friend over in Germany who owns one of the best BSA A10’s I have seen, it is not only a great looking bike with many upgrades, but it is used with a vengence too, often loaded up with full camping gear as Dieter once again heads out for a rally somewhere..
