    BSA Motorcycles, Armoury Road , Birmingham - who employed me as test bed engineer for - you have guessed it - Gold Star engines !!!

    About the best UK production bike engine made - broke my heart when they stopped production and I had to dismantle the test beds.

    Left UK shortly after probably due to the decline in UK engineering development !

    vincent black lightning, preferably in an egli frame.
    of the more "modern" bikes, i would have to say the britten would be first choice.
    could settle for an old ducati 750ss, and i still have a very soft spot for knucklehead harleys. other rigid-framed harleys give me a tingle, too.

    A friend of mine in the UK owns one of these


    It has never seen rain and is in mint condition. For an old bike the handling is amazing. Pure engineering genius, a shame they don't have electricians in Italy though.

    Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1300R would be just about right.

    I had an AJS and was in Indian/AJS in sacto in 1953 to get a part, and they had a Bonnieville Chief 80 on the floor, was the most beautiful machine I had ever saw, I told them that I didn't think they could ever build a more beautiful motorcycle, no matter how hard they tried.
    I would have bought that sucker, but who ever had or ever would have $1.800 US dollars to spend on a motorcycle..... haha

    Notice anything wrong with the one in the pic???

    i owned a number of them, plus a few desmo singles, but the roundcase ones are the real thing.

    I just wish I had my Hondamatic 400/4 again. It was ideal for Thailand.

    Failing that, another cry from the past, my Norton Commando.
