You Have Small Arms

This gave me a stiffy – a Birmingham Small Arm holding an orange. A 1956 BSA Gold Star 500, one of the fastest machines of the 50’s. These were hand built and supplied from the factory with documented dyno details for each bike. The Goldstar won every Isle of Man Clubmans TT from 1949 to 1956 when the series was discontinued. In that last year in the 500 race, Gold Stars took all the first six places. Incredible to think that by the mid seventies BSA, Norton and Triumph would all be gone.
