20 pages and nobody posted up those BSA ads from the late 60's. I was always especially fond of the girl with the crowvar across her shoulders and excelsior on the floor with the BSa unpacked from the crate.

Couldn't tell - all them Beezers and Trumpets look the same to me.

Doug - fellow Nortonista here. Why ya think I haven't bothered to distinguish the BSAs and Triumphs.

Although, the pathetic fact is, I know there isn't a Beezer or Trumpet out there to match my Commando. But I still want one of each. (1968 or 1969 please.)

And a Brough Superior, and a Vincent (anything but a prince, please). And a 74 Ducati 750SS with round cases. That's it. Then I'll stop. Oh, and a panhead HD. But that really is it...And a Royal Enfield Interceptor and Laverda Jota. Okay, that really is it.

Don't forget the AJS 7R....

I need a Triumph Tripple, then I'll have one of each wiht a different motor configuration. A BSA Single, Norton Twin, and Triumph Tripple; although I do want my friends Manx and I am Norton Biased.....

I have older British bikes as well but to be fair I don't see them competing with the Commando in any type of comparison. The latter (introduced in 1967) belongs to a later generation of bikes...the first generation labelled "Superbikes", including Honda 4's, BSA/Triumph triples, H1's etc where it acquitted itself very well. With light weight, great handling, disc brake stopping and strong performance it's still very practical to run in modern day traffic...by classic bike standards anyway! I don't compare my Commando to it's older BSA garage mate any more then to my Yamaha FZ1!

And for the purposes of this thread...while a girl looks just about any bike, the Norton tradition there is hard to beat!
