In keeping with the topic I'd like to once more post these two videos of the 2010 BSAOC "motherlode ride".

Honestly don't know much about BSA. Saw this beauty at a vintage aircraft show in Brampton, Ontario.

Got rid of the 441's when this guy came along. Sitting in a barn since 1968, but slowly coming back:





Bits cleaned up. Still a ways to go, but I'm having fun with it.

the little bastard

I've been helping my neighbor to get this basket case going.
The star motor has been replaced by a 65 441.
It's getting a modern styling job to do away with the girlie bike look.

Great thread. Keep the Beezer pics coming! Just like with Triumphs the USA got the sweeter looking spec BSAs. Thankfully there are still loads of Beezers Stateside with low mileage and in very original condition.

I'm not sure about the BSAs but the Triumphs which were exported to the USA in the 70's all had peanut tanks and high bars. Those that stayed at home were ridden by poseurs. Folks who really wanted to ride here in the UK all went for Euro spec models with larger tanks and flat bars.

I have always been apauled at the sight of high bars.
And in the day, hated the introduction of the "special".
Created to garnish some of the harley sales?
There are folks who like bars like you would find on a 1981 XS650 yamaha.
However, I am warming to those western bend bars.
This is about as far as I'm willing to go.
