The BSA project has been sitting patiently on the bench for a few months now, I stripped it down and have spent many hours staring at it since. I had a whole heap of different ideas for this bike but it has really taken some time to settle on a direction that I am happy with. This project is extra special as I am building the bike for my Father, the guy who is responsible for my addiction to bikes, someone who has owned BSA’s all his life and probably the most important customer I could ever have – I really want to make sure I get this one right!

This BSA is the latest bike to roll into the Supacustom workshop. Its a 1971 BSA Firebird, this bike was one of the last models released by BSA before the brands eventual demise in 1973. The bike features and Oil in Frame design that I actually really like, I know many BSA enthusiasts prefer the earlier non OIF models but for what I have in mind the OIF version is perfect. The bike has a strong motor that has only done a handful of k’s since a complete rebuild, the rest of the bike is pretty tidy, by no means is it a concours restoration but it is neat and reliable. Its totally stock with the exception of a Boyer electronic ignition system. Its a fun bike jsut the way it is but as is always the case I just can’t help myself – let the modifying begin!

So its been a few weeks and the dust has settled on the first Oil Stained Brain show, it was a huge success and the organisers are already making plans for the 2013 show. The official photos have just been released, great shots by Shannon Djordjevic from Flake Kustom Photography and Lisa Feagan.
Wow, this would have to be one of the most radical BSA 500′s I’ve ever seen! In the owners words;
“This bike started our a 1950/ ZB34/ BSA…all that’s left is the crank,barrel and trans, the rest I made except for the tires, rubber is hard to work with…it’s been in a few shows a usually gets attention wherever I show it ….”
I’d certainly stop and take a close look…very impressive indeed.
