Those Pony's will never break a sweat with me in the saddle. I'll maybe see 130 once ( I say ominously) somewhere East of LA - flat and straight -and probably never ride the twisties hard enough to fade the brakes. I'm 75 and my apex-carving, peg-dragging days are over. But - Oh Baby - rolling that throttle on exiting a sweeper!! Bliss.i see now what you're after. 65 horsepower wears the old ones out pretty quick. but they're a blast while your doing it. i know someone in australia who went the other way
i think he's getting 80-something out of this 880cc BSA. but theres been a lot of work to do it, and i dont know what he expects in longevity.
if youre looking towards using that 90 horsepower, you might find even 4LS brakes pretty scary.
But you don't stretch the throttle cables for long on this machine in the motorcycle world I live in.
Though my first love was BSA, the example here doesn't suit me. It doesn't have The Look. When did BSA ever use a perimeter frame? If I wanted a fast BSA it would be the Rocket III. Right next to my dream Norton (or maybe the other way around).If I wanted a PRETTY BSA it would be the Lightening Rocket - gosh they are gorgeous.
where will I put the Vellocette.....
