    Two things I know:

    1. Tony is the best husband EVER.

    2. He gives REALLY good birthday presents.

    This is what he gave me for my 47th yesterday...

    It's a 1967 BSA 441 Victor. "Excited" doesn't even begin to describe how I feel about it.

    Now if this darn snow would hurry up and melt...

    WOW how neat, a round cylinder Victim. PLEASE Make SURE you are getting oil flow to the rockers. DAMHIK: :lol3 Make sure those oil lines are open and flowing freely.

    I notice the exact same oil mist from around the head gasket that mine had. :evil

    Get rid of the roll of toilet paper oil filter and get something better. Mine had a history of seizing pistons.

    Learn the startng technique, Mine was a bear to start.

    Get ready to tear up rear tires, the thing is a ditch digger. :D

    Brings back memories. Good and bad. :evil BTW: this picture was taken a few years ago, like about 45 or so :gerg

    Nice.
    Looks like it has a head gasket leak. Don't throw away a sheet of cardboard - it will leak.
    My B50MX (Triumph badged) is a royal pain to start. oof Hope yours starts easier.
    Great classic old bikes though. Enjoy!

    Awesome! Your husband really does give great presents. I hope you will tell us more about it and include pictures when you get to start riding it. :clap

    Congrats on a fine survivor!
    Rode briefly one twice in '68 in/near Great Falls MT, owner was Dad's work pal. Torque monster for the time period.
    Dad rode it once for 10 ft and went right into the side of owners Toy land cruiser. Dad was NOT a motorcyclist then or ever! :huh
