This 1968 BSA Chopper Has Plenty Of Stories To Tell

Imagine the stories that former owners of this running-when-parked BSA could tell about the places they visited, the freedom they felt twisting its throttle, the thrill of ditching the cops and the look of bliss on the faces of tripping passengers while leaning on the padded sissy bar (can I use that term in 2020?). This relic deserves to be on display in The Chopper Graveyard or any motorcycle museum.

Or better yet, somebody should grab this beauty, get it running and add to the stories that have already passed by its springer front end. I don’t usually include a link in my Running-When-Parked stories, but I’m making an exception. I hope this Beezer finds a loving home. If it is still available, you can get more information by clicking here.

I assume that modified head tube, sometimes called a gooseneck, creates a very unique handling motorcycle and probably adds a bit of flexy suspension. Love the bike’s custom paint.

The phrase “running when parked” (RWP) is code for a once treasured possession that has been neglected in the corner of the garage or tool shed for far too long. Lacking the energy, time or resources to bring the little beauty back to life, the owner lists it for sale in hopes that a new owner will massage it back to health. Our collection of RWP bikes fall into two distinct categories; treasure or trash. And you are the only one who can properly judge which category the bike belongs in.
