    Oy kill joy, no way, now if it was a thruxton 500 maybe, but this is a sweet
    350 MAC made in 1960, a sexy little minx, i might get her tuned so she can nudge the ton, but will not tax her to much :!!)

    Very nice, Woolie, but a dumb design. I think you'll find that it will go much faster and farther if you put the back wheel on the ground.

    That's a nice bike. But it does not look comfortable to ride! So short! And the handle bars, so low!

    I almost bought a lovely old BSA 350 off my boss a few years ago. Not quite a nice as this, and I really would probably be dead twice by now. Once cos it's a motorbike, and twice because it had drum brakes.

    Enjoy it Wooly!

    Well at least you like the looks of this magnificant beasty, wind resistance
    is the reason why bikes have low handle bars, a few mph more is all ways better, when i could not afford a top of the range bike i had a bsa c15 250
    that i tuned, i fitted clip on handle bars and rear sets, in this configeration
    it would keep up with a 650 triumph upto 60 mph and just nudge the ton,
    the magic number in the 60s, i often wonder if she is still around ,she did
    survive two trips through hedges.

    Oh boy have you never had a hard ride ? with a bike one adjusts the stering
    damper to max, and adjusts the the rear end to the road, these adjustments
    can add several mph :!!)

    A big single? Did you consider a Manx Norton? That's the scariest single I've ever swung a leg over. My current ride is an '05 Softail EFI with a Power Commander (tunable computer control) and exhaust upgrade.
