I was down at Skeeter’s Motorsports this weekend and look what I ran into. This beautiful 1962 BSA. This was Skeeter’s bike from back in the day. The original fuel tank had been stored away and the crew just recently ran across it. It is looking pretty good for being 50 years old.
They also happened to have this copy of Motorcyclist magazine that shows the roots of the Catalina model. Chuck “Feets” Minert won the 1956 race and that inspired the factory to produce the iconic model. Here are a few pictures of both the bike and magazine copy.
