Here is a picture of my 1954 Road Rocket that I completed a full nut and bolt restoration on, on October the 8th 2009. This pic was taken on October the 11th 2009, it was it's first run with the BSA club of Vic. Australia.
Glad to hear your o.k. I almost taken out by a Ferrari myself on the A6 east of Saarbrucken on my way home from the Isle of Man after the Manx at about 11pm. I hear him first and then saw his lights and less than a sec. later saw the s.o.b. slam on his brakes, swerve around me. My ass was clinched for the 60km then I was home.
Apparently $$$ + balls = Ferrari but common sense is extra
G'day Andy, Sorry to read about this bad news. Hopefully, you'll be recuperating and taking it easy at the moment. I'm also located in Melbourne and my brother is doing up a 55 Road Rocket. He has a 56 as a donor bike so a few spares are floating around, located in Hurstbridge. I'm in Sunbury.. Drop me a line some time and we can organise to catch up.
