My old BSA gets a new look-

I just got an email from a guy asking if his bike looked familiar to me. I was shocked to see my old 1970 BSA Lightning that I brought back from the dead a few years ago, then sold to a friend, that sold it to someone else. Apparently, the new owner like it enough to keep lots of the stuff the same, but added a few of his own touches that appear to be nicely done. He removed the side covers, stretched the swingarm a few inches, and replaced the stock seat with a much nicer and smaller one. He also added the exhaust wrap and shorty mufflers, which I normally wouldn't be a big fan of, but the bike looks good with them. The bottom pic is when I brought the bike home, the middle one is when I sold it, and obviously, the top pic is the current state of the bike. Nice work Rudy! Let me know if you ever decide to part with it...

  1. Do you have a pic of the "when you sold it" bike that shows the left side?
