Old and neglected. Stuff is too cheap in this country. I was in Italy and saw bikes locked in bike racks that would have been in the dumpster (skip) years ago.
The BSA got tossed under a summer cottage ages ago. The owner of the Triumph died last week.


Please do not believe anything I write. I am a hack but I like to guess the right answers.

I have been reading with interest this excellant posting. I come from a Through cycling family Dad hated motorbikes. He was a member of the CTC & Norwood Paragon Cycling Club. In my homes hallway 6 foot wide we had 5 Push Bikes & a Tandam that both my sister & i were brought up on , on asecondaty seat behind Dad & between Mum or of couse in the sidecar on the side. I have just on eBay 4 of my restored British bikes got hardly anything fot them on eBay. I have for the past 2 weeks had this stock of Brand New British Bike spares not one bid. It is a shame that most of you enthusiasts are so far away.

Funny... Just found this ( old ) thread while googling for info on a BSA bicycle I recently acquired grin
Nice to see some of you are into engine-less BritBikes too !

Anyway, I' ll add mine to this page then.

My ( almost- ) daily ride for many, many years has been a trusty late- fifties Triumph Sports bicycle.
It has seen hard times, since they use tons of salt to clear the roads from snow over here and it seems to me that iron doesn' t like that very much...
I had been looking for a replacement bike for a while now, so I could do a proper restoration one day, but I didn' t want just ANY bike to replace it of course !
However, a few days ago, a mate of mine asked me if I was interested in “an old BSA bicycle". A few minutes later I was knocking on his door laughing

It turned out to be a pretty solid and original early fifties Roadster model and I didn' t need time to think.
This bike would be the perfect replacement for the Triumph and a nice companion for my BSA B40 too.
Lights and pedals are not correct, but I do have the proper ones somewhere in a box...

Here' s some pictures:









And some rusty details of the Triumph:



I also have an early sixties Triumph Ladies model in slightly better condition that I would like to restore for my wife - one day...

Hey best of luck with the new ride. Looks pretty solid!

well since the thread is back, I should post my pics of my Star Rider. It still waits for me in Portugal, but I have all intentions of returning it to the states with me. It actually has two hub generators, on on the three speed rear wheel and one on the front as well! at least the front works I know! RAF bags on a random rack made it the useful beast it is :-) I really love the BSA crank!

Well, it' s been a while since posting to this thread, but maybe some of you guys might like this one...

My normal day-to-day job is being a freelance illustrator and I mainly use the computer these days to deliver my work.
My main apps are 3D- related and in-between jobs I like to create some models I do like in real life too, so my latest project was my 1954 BSA Roadster Bicycle.
It still needs some “real" tyres, but I hope you guys like it ... wink

Peter

Awesome Peter! Looks like a real bike or at least like what you'd see in a manufacturer's brochure.
Suitable for framing.

Thanks, Al ! smile

I do plan using it in illustrations every now and then, but some kind of “period" poster to put on the wall in my workspace has been on my mind too...

Without question, that is the best photo-realistic rendering I've seen on ANY forum.
