I still kick myself for selling this bike. I was sixteen and it was my first big bike. I got it used from a friend and rebuilt the engine, with my grandads help,and rode the heck out of it for two years. This was the day of magnetos and drum brakes and amal carbs, kick starting, and a seperate trans from the engine. I traded it in for a brand new 500cc Triumph. Back then 1965 the 500cc Triumph was winning at Daytona. The 1959 650cc BSA gave me some good memories and no bad ones.
