Not mine, just saw it on CL. Always wanted one though and this looks like a nice one.

The front brake is wrong - it would have had the 8" singe sided item ,the headlight wouldnt have been chrome , and the silencer doesnt look right , but as a rider the price is ok.

The origonal brake was the same as fitted to the 1950 Gold Star , and was regarded by some as the best brake BSA ever made.

With soft linings turned to match the drum , the shoes fully floated , and race compound 18'' TT100 front tire I can do one finger stoppies on mine.

Cant get wheelies without using the clutch , though.

And no, the 18" front alloy rim isnt standard eeither , when I fitted it it gave me a better choice of tires , but that has changed since then.

Did anyone buy it yet? I stopped myself when I realized I already had two bikes apart and one to tune. Damn job keeps interupting my work.
