    It's not my bike but this was taken by my uncle who was the Western Sales Rep. for Hap Alzina in the early 60s. Hap was the BSA importer for the western U.S. based in Oakland.

    This photo is priceless. One can only look at it and wonder how many stories are associated with it.

    My Vision outside a little father/son shop.....

    I LOVE the fact you can toss the bike over on the "tip overs" and slide the front wheel out - very quick front tire changes. Add to that the fact Im running a car tire that gets 30K+ miles to a change - no tire worries......

    How about a bike INSIDE a shop that wasn't mine when the photo was taken?

    Max BMW selling a KTM they took in on trade. Fly and ride from Michigan. They couldn't wait to get the orange monster out of the show room.
