It Followed Me Home!

I have a feeling this may end up in Roy's Regrets thread, but my neighbor told me about a 1967 BSA A65 Lightning they had in their shed that hadn't seen light of day in 20 years. One thing let to another...













Bugger.

If you don't want a restoration project mate, you could also do a little custom bobber out of it

Hard to resist these old classics.

Cheerio,

Roy

That would be pretty cool if you restored it. Or you could buy a brand new bike and save a few grand. :P

OK, so a really good wash was administered:








Now, I'm in a head versus heart state. Head says finish the Guzzi, then move onto the BSA. Heart says get ripped into the BSA. What's a boy to do?

Go with your heart mate,

Take a well earned rest from the Guzzi and have some fun and make a start in the BSA. The Guzzi isn't going anywhere and will be there to pick up when you need a break from the BSA.

Cheerio,

Roy

@Psycopasta that tank is gorgeous!! (especially after the wash job) Congrats on the purchase and good luck with your new adventure. It'll be interesting to see how you tackle the job. Are you thinking about doing an original restoration, or getting creative and making a one-off build out of it?

Each one matters.
