    BSA Motorcycles back in business?

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    If it does come back I'd hope it keeps the retro look.

    This bike was built and ridden by Jack Simmons who was a local hero based in Long Beach CA. It was a bike that I really made a big impact on me as did Jack. I was about 13 when I used to hang out in the repair shop at Joe Koons motorcycle shop. Jack was really patient and put up with a lot of dumb kid questions and answered them all. Later a friend of my mothers son ended up buying that bike from Jack. He had to keep it in a friends garage because his mom wouldn't allow him to have a motorcycle.

    He never let me ride it which was probably a good thing as friend of mines older brother let me ride his x-Ascot TT bike on the street and I proceeded to break every traffic law I could.

    This would be a great direction for a reincarnated BSA to take for a retro series:

    I really don't care where it's made, but I hope like crazy they do high quality work. Beezers were the business.

    I agree. The new Triumph has stepped up and I like the quality of their new and retro bikes.
