Seller Notes: UP FOR BID IS MY 500 CC BSA ALLOY CLIPPER. IT IS A CONGLOMERATION OF PARTS THAT I ACCUMULATED OVER THE YEARS. THE FRAME IS A 1958 ALLOY CLIPPER. THE CRANK CASE IS A B33. THE CYLINDER AND HEAD IS A 1954GOLD STAR. THE TRANSMISSION HAS STANDARD GEAR RATIOS.THE IGNITION SYSTEM IS CONSTANT LOSS.I.E. THERE IS A POINT CONTACT BREAKER IN PLACE OF THE MAGNETO AND SPARK IS PROVIDED BY A COIL AND BATTERY. YOU CAN RUN ALL DAY,PROVIDED YOU HAVE A GOOD BATTERY.I BUILT THIS BIKE WITH THE IDEA OF RACING AHRMA VINTAGE IN THE OVER 70 CLASS,BUT NOW WITH THE PRICE OF GAS AND THE LONG DISTANCE I NOW HAVE TO TRAVEL TO GET TO A RACE ,IT JUST ISN'T WORTH IT TO ME.
Year: 1958 Mileage: 20
Make: BSA Engine Size (cc): 500
Model: ALLOY CLIPPER TYPE Vehicle Title: Clear
A FRIEND OF MINE BOUGHT THIS BIKE IN 1959. I BECAME A BSA DEALER NOT TO LONG AFTER MY FRIEND HAD ACQUIRED IT . OVER THE YEARS I LOST TRACK OF IT BECAUSE IT CHANGED HANDS MANY TIMES.SOMETIME IN THE 80"S AN OTHER FRIEND OF MINE CALLED ME UP AND TOLD ME HE HAD THIS BSA FRAME IN HIS FIELD,AND IF I WANTED IT TO COME AND GET IT, SO I DID. OVER THE ENSUING YEARS I FOUND ENOUGH PARTS TO MAKE A MOTORCYCLE OF IT AGAIN. IN 2003 I STARTED PUTTING IT TOGETHER. WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT THEY WERE GOING TO CELEBRATE THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF BSA'S 5 BIKE SWEEP OF DAYTONA AT THE DAYTONA TRACK DURING BIKE WEEK 2004. I WENT ALL OUT TO GET IT READY FOR IT . I HAD A CLOSE FRIEND WHO RACED MOTORCYCLES ON THE OLD BEACH COURSE,AND I ASKED HIM IF HE WOULD LIKE TO RIDE MY BIKE AT DAYTONA WITH ALL THE OTHER OLD TIMERS THAT WERE GOING TO RIDE THE OLD BIKES FOR A FEW LAPS.OF COURSE HE SAID YES,SO I PUT NUMBER PLATES ON THE BIKE WITH HIS OLD NUMBER 74. SO WHOEVER BUYS THIS BIKE CAN SAY THAT IT HAS RUN ON THE DAYTONA SPEEDWAY AND NOT BE LYING ABOUT IT. I HAVE INCLUDED A PICTURE OF MY BSA WHEN I SET IT UP FOR THAT DAY AT DAYTONA. MY BUDDY ,AL LEWIS, IS GETTING READY TO GO OUT ON THE TRACK WITH ALL THE OTHER OLD TIMERS. INCIDENTALLY, AL HAS A BRICK AT THE DAYTONA MONUMENT,JUST NORTH OF MAIN STREET,BETWEEN THE HOTEL AND THE BEACH. THE GAS TANK IS OFF MY 1961 GOLD STAR,AND THE I BORROWED THE SEAT FROM A FRIEND OF MINE. THE WHEELS ARE OFF MY 1960 GOLD STAR AHRMA ROAD RACER.
