Fast forward 50 years and his friend shows up with a 56 Square 4 for him to restore. While working on the bike he comes across a few mods he rememberred doing back in the day when he owned it.
The bike is now on display at his friends bike dealership while a black 57 model was actually my dad's Square 4 for the past 35 years.

Had my Norton up to NYC for some work recently.... Seems the lay shaft bearing was a bit dodgy... but when they got into it, they found the bearing had been replaced, but the bushes and other things were knackered. Here, the shaft had just been wobbling about in there, and everything was all tore up!







My buddy Hugh Mackie did the job- his shop in New York- Sixth Street Specials is as historic and cool as the bikes he owns, rides, races (flat track), and works on...
Hugh is a long time NYC motorcyclist- even used to hang out with Indian Larry and that bunch. He has some stories about riding about the city that are really fascinating. One GREAT guy! There are usually one or two interesting characters hanging about the place... and eye candy of various sorts...

Vintage Bike Night in Tucson

This BSA was purchased at a yard sale in 1987 for $300. It had 3000 miles on it at the time. $125 was spent rebuilding the carbs and new tires were installed. Never restored, it now has 8300 miles on the clock.
