Default 66 bsa lightning

Here is a pic of my 66bezza.I bought the bike in 94,
rode it that summer than blew it apart for a frame up resto.
The frame is molded ,all welds ground smooth.The paint is
House of Color candy red with a cinder red base. Front rim is original
(rechromed) the rear rim is from central wheel components . Both rims
are laced with s/s spokes from Buchanan. The bike still isn't finished. The motor
has no interals and it's on display in my livingroom!

Default BSA & Triumph

BSA owned triumph. I not sure but I think BSA bought out Triumph in 1957.
Go to google earth and type in Armory Road Birmingham England. Thats where the factory was located .the main building was demolished in the 1970's, the building thats left has a huge hole in the roof.

Thanks for the compliments on the BSA.
