Here is my 1972 A65T. I restored it pretty much to original. A couple-three noticeable exceptions are the polished conical hubs, a MAP oil filter kit, and Boyer ignition.

Some of the things that were done was the frame and all black parts were powdercoated high-gloss black including the cylinder jug. All the chromed parts were re-chromed, and the lettering on the rims was re-etched before they were re-chromed. All cadmium bits were re-plated some 500+ bits. It has a new wire harness, new sealed wheel bearings and a sealed battery installed. The paint (color: Etruscan Bronze - the bike's original color)is a 2 stage paint with 5 coats of clear. The motor was rebuilt, transmission was gone through, and the clutch was replaced along with the counterspocket. It is a great ride. The bike looks, rides, and starts better than when it was new.

1972-ish B50 Gold Star cafe racer. A real treat to ride!

Hi Ger,

Yes, that's the one: same bike, other colour: I've painted it blak last summer.
At the moment working on the front suspension and front wheel (spokes).

I noticed the colour change, GertJan, so I wondered...
I also did work on the spokes of my front wheel, which was out of center between the fork legs.
At this moment I'm fabricating an alternative front brake operated brake light switch.
I will publish it here on Brtit Bike when it's finished.
No rocket science, but a working alternative to the original [email protected] switch in the front brake cable.

Cheers beerchug

Hmm... Now its appeared so might try another one.

This one was taken at last year's BMOA Yearly rally that was written-up in Walnecks.

Not everyone's cup O'tea I know it having a Triumph engine an'all but I really like it.

I had the frame powder coated, painted the red bits myself using base coat/clear coat urethane system.

Reto-fitted it with 5-speed cluster, 18 inch rear rim Lucas ignition, 3 into 1 and other small mods to make it how I wanted it. Otherwise stock.

Different to the twins but still lovely bike to ride. Absolutely howls on its 3 into 1.

Rick F: Sweet pair of machines for sure! What is the source of the TLS brake on the 56 roadster? It looks like the real deal.

Gordo in Comox: thanx for the compliment. Lots of nice machines here - I love looking at other peoples' bikes (especially BSAs). The brake on the roadster is by Phil Pearson in the UK. http://www.pearsongoldstarbsa.freeserve.co.uk/
Phil's stuff takes a while to get (he makes very small batches), but it's worth it.

Cheers
Rick F

Rick: Thanks for the info. How well does that brake work and what kind of $$$ are we looking at?

I agree Phil makes fine bits, his Susuki clutch conversion is a work of art.

Gordo, the brake is a substantial improvement over a SLS, but it still requires a healthy grip. It doesn't seem as powerful as the TLS on my late 60s Triumph, but in fairness I had the Triumph brake "tuned up" by Michael Morse at Vintage Brake, and all I've done with Phil's is shove it in. I think the Triumph brake had wider shoes too. One of these days I may give this one a "tune-up" too, but it is adequate for street riding as it is.

With respect to price, I honestly don't remember and I'd rather let Phil speak to that anyway. There are some things it's better not to dwell on the price of (or leave evidence about where the Mrs can find it) and this is one of them. Let's just say it was more than the price of a good AMAL GP with float bowl...

Cheers
Rick F

Rocker,

Thanks for starting this post.
It is a good time of the year to see so many great looking machines.
Very inspiring to get into gear for the spring.

Bsa 23,
I think I've lined up next to you on the grid, do you recognize my outfit and co-pilot?
Cheers,
Rick

"Rocker,

You`re welcome. I`m happy that so many people post their bikes here. It`s amazing to see all these cool bikes. Keep em coming

Maybe britbike should start a gallery with members bikes?

rexeverything: What is that on your timing side ? I guess it`s either a supercharger mount and the tubes goes on the other side or an extra dynamo.

LJ: It`ll be interesting to see how your m21 project goes. Good luck.


Here`s one of mine:
