not a 50 year old guy for a change!

Post  Tobias on Thu 17 Jun - 1:17

So yeah,

I'm Tobias, I live near eindhoven and I am a good friend of Peter ( with the triumph) he is also on this forum.
About a year ago, when I was 16 I bought a 1964 bsa lightning rocket in Phoenix America, and started restoring it, although restoring is not exactly the right word.
Restoring an old bike is nothing new for me, I own several zundapps but a BSA is something else .
I'm rebuilding her mechanically, some bits new chrome but mostly original.
She has survived all these years very well, and I plan to really use her for what she was built RIDING.

I'll show some pics how I found her in a barn. The carton boxes she was covered with were pushed away for the picture Wink

In the wintertime she was looking like this:

and a couple of weeks ago:


But the real restoration project just started because I finished my school
You guys should see her now

Hi Tobias and welcome to the forum. It's good to see more "young blood" interested in Cafe Racers. Nice Beeza and the Jags nice too.
