I'm very happy to have the same braking power as the "big boys".
And the same restyled electrics and controls.

That's where it all started. BSA = Birmingham Small Arms. That's Birmingham, Warwickshire, England not Birmingham, Alabama.

scopes

I see scopes advertized that are using the BSA logo.
Afilliated with the original bsa factory?
Or somebody trying to associate their product with the history?

that link

Thanks for that.
I just find it such a shame the turn of events that changed the industry.
(japanize invaision/british demise)
Made life tough for a number of years. (like 20)
Now days with the internet, reproduction parts, and particularly for me, the increase in intrest in the B50, parts can be aquired from home.
So persistance, sticking-to-it have paid off.
Also buying 5 junkers over the years doesn't hurt keeping my main machine a daily driver!

The more recent junk salvage is documented in this youtube video;



Geez, I save the broken parts...ha, if nothing else to tell the story!

Very nice bike there!
Those bars...
I think I have a set of those. There are handlebars that came with the T and MX models that I just can't stand...or sit

I have used the pair before, (seen in a scanned 1984 photo), and plan on using them again soon on my triumph, or maybe a yam 650.

Is this what they call the "western bend" ?
They are kind of like superbike bars. But superbike bars a narrower and have less pullback. Anyone know?
