The bike is stunning, especially when you consider that each example is a pre-production prototype. BSAOC has been involved from the start & they are genuinely lovely, enthusiastic people for the brand.
One bike has been tested on Millbrook proving ground & I am booked for a test ride as soon as a road legal version is available.
Now I feel obliged to give you all a laugh.
A good mate wants to clear space in his garage that is occupied by his son's 1977 Z650B-ish.
Its last tax ran out in January 1997.
Z650B frame with engine and alloy wheels from C variant, fitted by the dealer he bought it from all those years ago.
42k miles on the clock.
Bike stripped for refurbishment last year. Frame powder coated, chroming done, engine in one lump, not touched.
It's now offically an abandonned project.
The shiny brand new s/arm would have to be extra.
Any takers? Go on you know you want to...
