BSA Choppers


Back in the very-late-1970s and very-early-1970s, crazy guys (usually without a whole lot of money to work with) were chopping everything with two wheels. I had a couple of buddies who chopped their 350 Hondas, and Honda 750 choppers weren't uncommon. For the guys who couldn't afford to step up to a Harley, they would often chop old Brit bikes like Triumphs, BSA, and the like. BSA Choppers were never as common as Triumph choppers, but they were out there. Here are a few BSA Choppers for you to enjoy:
OLD SCHOOL BSA CHOPPER
'Old School' is right. This 1966 BSA 500 got the classic early-1970s treatment. Rigid tail section welded to a stock frame (doesn't appear to be raked), period-correct aftermarket oil tank, extended stock forks, "Coffin" tank, "Banana" seat and sissy bar. And check out that classic pinstripe job. I think I rode this bike in high school.

This bike just changed hands and the new owner, Dale Martin of Spanaway WA writes: "I just purchased it 3 weeks ago. It's a project. 1966 BSA 500 twin chopper. Haven't had it running yet. Changed the handlebars & a few other things already, having a lot of fun working on it. I'm 70 years young & always wanted a BSA since the 50's when I was a kid." Congratulations, Dale, it looks like you got your wish.
