My father in law likes BSA Hornets.We found this Hornet in the basement of a restaurant. Most of the bike was not able to be salvaged. Rusted frame, aftermarket tank, no covers, seat was a mess, etc... He decided to build a dirt bike with the motor. He changed the head to a single carb. Found a new frame for the motor. Used a custom painted alloy tank. And started attaching parts that he thought would look right.

This bike shakes the floor when she is growling.

My 1966 BSA Thunderbolt.
Was a nicely restored machine when I got it in 2004.
Over the years I've been restoring it again, piece by piece.
The big item was finding a decent chrome sided tank.
Not a daily driver, but when the sun is out, I'm gone.
See the bike here:

nice looking machine, joe.


"Are bikes so nice as all that?" asked the mole, shyly...

"Nice? They're the only thing," said the Water Rat Solemnly, as he leaned forward on the handlebars. "Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- half so much worth doing as simply messing about with bikes."

The rivet counters would get you on the rocker cover, looks like a '70 one.

Me, i wouldn't worry, it looks like a nice bike.

Not worried about it, thanks for the info. Possible a later engine swapped in or are there any other indicators the bike may be a 70? I'll have to double check the title but I'm pretty sure at least the frame is 67.

A friend of my father in law sold him this Victor that was sitting for a long time. The grips are AMAL and it has the tire pump. It is running. Leaving it as a running original.

Nice... as it sounds like you already know, AMAL grips would have been stock on a 66... think that was the last year for them?

Finally located and fitted a '69 front brake to my FS replica. I'm not planning any further mods.

My recently bought 1951 Bantam D1. Bike was ridden in the 1951 & 1952 ISDT in austria by Fitzroy Allen who won a gols in the 1951 race on the bike. Bike has been in storage since 1953 and only taken out for shows a few times. A time capsule of its last race

Here's my 1970 Thunderbolt that I recently purchased as a project. Prior owner had the carb and top end rebuilt just before I bought it. I was unlucky enough to shear the kickstart ratchet pinion gear the first time I tried to start it. This is my first vintage motorcycle and I'm a complete beginner when it comes to these bikes and doing anything mechanical in general beyond changing a tire/brakes etc but I'm sure this bike will make me a mechanic whether I like it or not!
