Early BSA Chopper Survivor!

I was sifting through a killer photo set of 60's and 70's choppers that Paul posted on his blog, and immediatedly recognized this BSA as an old chop that Ton Up Tim (Trophy Motorcycles) had rescued a while back from the original builders basement in Ocean Beach. He built it in San Diego in 1965 and supposedly, that picture was taken at the "San Diego Motorcycle Show". Check out the rotary payphone in the background! A few things were changed while the previous owner's brother owned it, but the paint and general build style remain intact and this bike will soon be back on the streets of San Diego. Amazing bike!
