My Dad had a 1938 BSA 350cc Empire Star from new and later my brother ended up with a 59 Bonnie (not bought new) I still, have my 1960 BSA Shooting Star 52 years on and my son has a Honda VFR 750 plus a Ducati monster in bits which he will never rebuild. My grandson is following on with a little minibike (he is only 5). So you could say its in the blood.

Not sure how to get photos up on the replies but the one on my profile is me on the BSA at 19 back in the sixties, oh for those days again.

My grandfather had a Triumph which my grandmother made him keep in a rented garage in another town because she didn't want the neighbors to think she married a hoodlum!

Then I came along and, well, there went the neighborhood.
