BSA Boris

Right well after the success of rebuilding Stan (the original orange bike of mine) last week, I took upon myself to start looking at one of the other bikes in the fleet. This is the blue bike I bought a few months ago from a chap in Norfolk. This is...

BSA Stan torsion bars

The other weekend when on the BSA Bosworth Bumble I was very aware Stan wasn’t handling the corners very well, and all during the ride I took then very steady. The BSA Ariel 3 has rear torsion bars which steer the rear end into a corner (3 wheel steer way...

BSA Bosworth Bumble day two

Sunday AM was much colder than Saturday’s weather, although the sun was out and strong. I checked the thermometer in the car a few times but it wouldn’t get above 3 degrees. Nick and I had arrived around 9:30 am and to keep ourselves warm, set about unloading the bikes...

BSA Bosworth Bumble

A good mate of mine and I arranged earlier in the year a get together of the BSA Ariel 3 owners we had made friends with on Facebook. As always dates and times are everything when it comes to meet-ups, invariably one is the same date as another event and...

BSA Ariel 3 ride and test

It has been a while since I have ridden out on the Moped, mainly due to weather at weekends being poor and also being busy with the Viva GT resto. I have parked up the GT resto for a bit, as I need to take stock of where I am,...

BSA Rack for car

Not content to just ride a “trike of doom” around, today a good friend, with my guidance and instructions modified the old Dave Coopers Bike rack to fit the Trike! It means I can travel around park up, ride out come back load up drive home. It still needs to...

Frankenair more work done

A massive thanks to Nick again. I popped over to the farm, to assist (aka stand around looking lost whilst Nick got on with things). As always my legs are failing me so little was done by me in the last few hours other than moan about sore legs. But...

BSA collection

It has been on the cards for a while, but it was time for me to pop over to Norfolk and collect the bikes I had agreed to purchase. It turned out to be a rather full van in the end. Not a lot done I am afraid other than...

Road Trip

I went on a road trip down south with my Mate nick to have a look at another Air3 Trike. Nick bought this one for a good price and in his own words would have it running in no time at all. It came with another full bike all stripped...

Frankenair starts to take shape

Today was the next step for me in bike ownership, frankenair was back on the workbench and I tried to assists Nick where i could as he develops the important parts (chain tensioner). I ended up bodging up some odd plates for various fittings, generally standing around with the camera...
