BSA Gold Star.

About 10 years ago (or so) there was a BSA owners gathering at the Daytona infield during the vintage races at bike week. This was back when they did it on a weekend instead of squeezing it in on a Mon/Tue so the turnout was fantastic. Anyway I remember being stopped in my track when I saw them gathered. All those chrome tanks and polished cases made for quite an impressive sight. Plenty of proud owners to go with the. If I ever get the urge to “go British” BSA would definitely make my short list. Maybe a Gold Star or maybe a Victor. But it’d definitely be a single.

Stunning 1967 BSA 500 Scrambler.

The photo is very large. I usually reduce them a bit but the detail is stunning. Thanks to regular contributor Dave Innola for forwarding this on. The bike belongs to John Court who took it on a nice journey:

Hello Boys,a great run out today on the Scrambler (1957 BSA 500) I did the 100 mile Eskdale which basically takes in the steepest banks in the area & the North Yorks moors. About 90 entries in all cars & bikes. Was having a great time then for the 1st time in a long time I ‘overcooked’ it on an uphill bend, no one else to blame but I ended in a ditch… slow motion & a definate wake up call! Thankfully no major damage & with the help of two other riders got the bike sorted & completed the run. There was one skidmark just before the bend & the other just after which will hopefully come out in the wash! Will give the bike a good check over tomorrow ready for another run.

Cheers Jon
P.S Can confirm now that Adrenaline is brown!

Reader submittals! I may be out of web range this weekend so here are a few placeholders in the mean time. I’ll check in if I can.

Some Great BSA rally pics from regular contributor Ted Guthrie!

Ted sent me these a while back. Not sure how they got past me in my E-mail. Sorry about that Ted. Some real beauties in there. I’ve always wanted a Victor (not to mention a ROKON!) and that’s a beauty for sure.

Hi, Steve. We had our summer BSA meet this weekend. Here are a few shots of some interesting bikes seen there. Note the “raffle” bike. Anyone can take a shot at it, for just five bucks! Go to the OVBSAOC website for more info.
