No that’s not a typo….
Thanks to our regular contributor Chuck Lathe who writes in:
I’m attaching a couple of photos of a BSA Gold Star. I wrote the owners name down, but now I can’t remember which one is his name. Anyway, I asked and he said the bike weighs about 320 pounds. There are a couple of very small headlights and there is a tag and brake light under the seat so a lot of cops would say it’s street legal. (I’m guessing others might not.) Instead of a of a primary chain, he has a belt in there. The bike was on the road and sounds good and not at all obnoxious.
Keep up the good work.
Regards, Chuck Lathe

At least that’s what it started out as one. Somebody sure had a vision Not sure about how well the stained glass fairing would hold up though.
