Brilliant photos Stan. Makes me wish I was there.

If you hadn't already made fame and fortune tuning BSAs, I reckon you'd make it as a photographer!

great shots Stan, thanks for posting.
Beat,
that is Doug Fraser's B66, the second V-twin of the three he made. the first was a rigid frame "Empire Twin" using Empire Star heads and barrels. this one in the swinging arm frame uses B33 heads and barrels. the last one called "E120R" -E for Evolution, is a 75° v-twin double OHC 4 valve/cylinder race bike. the design started with a blank sheet of paper.
Stan,
so many unit singles, fantastic :!:

I just got my bi-monthly issue of the New Zealand BSA Owners club newsletter. On the back cover is a good sized pic Of Graham Stott on what is described as a "B50".
Image
The "quotes" amused me because they didn't think much of the "B50" came like that from the factory. Graham bought my '72 B50 instead of the one I built for him because the "B50" didn't look traditional enough.

Photobucket has sure turned into an even bigger bad joke. They now want $500 USD to rescue MY pictures from there.
