Thanks Andy, quite a few mods there seen in the article, and many more internally too I would assume!
There was an article on a Kato copied TY250 in a recent Trials Magazine article (UK) also.
Another question for you, on the Mori website, the BSA page with his C15T, a mention of a 1937 Empire Star is made, is that bike also in his collection or is that just in reference to the history of BSA?


I would rather push my twinshock than ride a modern!

Hi Andy,

What a fabulous and interesting story!

Would you be open to running your story on http://www.motorsportretro.com?

We need more retro trials content and those videos are superb.

I would credit you as author and photographer.

Let me know your thoughts

How about that, less than two hours and my mate has replied.

Evidently the BSA was sold two years ago, here are a couple of photos that I was sent.

Enjoy

Thanks Andy for chasing the photo's up. I know its a 350, but I will still look at it in reference for my long term project - a 500 version. Also a sidevalve 500 project lurks among my parts too, so I might have 2 on the go as the parts are so very similar. This interest/passion in the old BSA's is now what is holding me back from spending anymore money on trials bikes, and having make do with what I have now!
Thanks,
Roger B.
