Really good job! I love bikes that are simple in details, but set up to get the job done. Functional, in other words - without being specialized.

My cousin withhis brand new BSA Golden Flash. Lynwood, California.
This was around 1953. I was just an infant then, and have no memory of his motorcycle.
He told me some years ago that he converted the bike for desert racing, running in the races held in the Mojave. He eventually raced the bike at Catalina.

Here's my 1965 R69S.

This is the one vintage bike in my collection that's ridden regularly, and for long distances.
These things manage to do pretty well as touring bikes, even when compared with modern adventure tourers.
You just have to plan ahead when you need to pass.

Thanks for the links, Paul. Very good interview with Mr Webster. His collection is beautiful.

I'd like to know more about this cush drive. Is this something that was available on the aftermarket, or did you engineer it yourself?
Can you describe it? I think that the /3 BMW's used a rubber impregnated fabric disk in the driveline, and my old BMW 2002 car had a similar setup. Is this what you did? Given that the two examples I just mentioned have unenclosed driveshafts, that's pretty easy to do, but with the enclosed driveshafts of the later BMW's it would be more difficult to do it that way.
