I think this should sell well; It's not trying so hard to look like a classic BSA. The price is excellent.

I like the idea that we may get customized new Gold Stars.  its good to see new usual BSA and i think they get people interested in the history of BSA and the older bikes which can only be a good thing.

Wonder if they just threw the radiator away? Maybe just for show. If it runs well I really like it.

Who would have thought people would Photoshop a TLS brake onto a bike in 2024? *smile*
They say everything comes back into fashion sooner or later.  What next?

Pity, I liked the look of it.

Maybe so, but, if so, someone had a lot of time on their hands to do it with such high production value. A competitor, perhaps, trying to make it look like BSA makes promises they don’t keep?

This image has not been photoshopped. I've seen pictures as he's been working on it. I believe the radiator is still there somewhere! When the catalytic convertor is removed it leaves a gap below the front of the engine. He has probably made a radiator to fill that gap.


 I do not get why the owner would spend loads of money and time on this bike. He might as well have bought a real classic.

Why does the front drum brake have an external hydraulic disc caliper fitted?

I believe it is fake and is just a cover over the disk brake 🤔

Heh, fortunately, my centrestand acts as a sump guard.  Bergs, you need one of those Aussie style graders to sort that road *wink2*
