Big-Bore motorcycling at its elemental best. A "Thumper" - 441ccs of long-stroke, igh-torque, ingle-cylinder British iron from 1968. Old age and arthritis dictate that it is time for me to give her up. A "daily rider" - not showroom or museum quality, ut a nice, ood-looking bike you can happily ride.It turns heads and wins admiring glances wherever it goes. It-IS- a BSA, nd it -IS- 48 years old. There is a nice patina of age on the mechanicals. The bike was found in a barn in Upstate NY after many years of sitting. The years left their mark, ith some corrosion on the rims, ront brake drum, nd rear fender - light pitting on gas cap and headlamp shell - carefully review the photos. Using the correct tickle, ompression-release, hen kick with conviction starting drill, he bike starts easily and runs well. The Amal Concentric has extended Tickler and Idle Screw adjustments. I have gone completely through the bike since I purchased it, nd there are many new parts throughout the machine, ncluding new tyres, ew speedo, ew chain, ew clutch-brake-speedo cables, ebuilt carb, ex-screws on engine side covers, ew rear shocks, aiters, nd innumerable small parts. Buyer will receive a complete history of all work since I took possession of the bike in 2015. The paint is new and bright red - see photos. The tank and side panels are the original fiberglas. The tank has been sealed. I have used ONLY non-ethanol premium gasoline since I took possession in 2015. New Avon AM26 RoadRider tyres. New chain. Both center- and side-stands. The speedometer as-delivered was a handful of loose parts. Reassembly was futile; therefore, he actual mileage of the bike is unknown. A new reproduction speedometer has been installed. Matching engine and frame numbers. This is a USED and VINTAGE motorcycle, old AS-IS, HERE-IS, ith no other warranty, xpress or implied. It -IS- a BSA, nd will mark its territory with a few drops of oil. Otherwise, t is reasonably "oil-tight." Study the photographs carefully and bid appropriately.
