50 years ago today!!

Post by lancashirelad » Tue Aug 13, 2019 12:42 pm

50 years ago today I got up at 6am on my 16th birthday for a quick ride around the area before work on my BSA C15T my first bike on the road 440 AWU, I noticed the other day a C15T for sale on eBay & the add said its original number had been 427 AWU it was exactly like the one I had, it was advertised at £7.5K I sold mine for 49yrs ago for £45!!
The first name in the log book of the one I owned was one of the Lampkins from nearby Silsden, if I remember correctly. I googled the reg number recently & there was an article on MCNs website in 2002 & someone was asking for info on my old bike amongst others.
I wonder if it's still around?
I've to start again now buying & fitting all the bits I had on the previous cb500x!!! :D

Great post the only bike I wonder about is a Suzuki Katana szx 1100 one of the fabled 50 built for production racing overseas, I swapped for a new big tank 600 tenere

Like your signature and loving all the bits lol
Those Dunlop d609 tyres r shite being swopped next week, how can you spin up a tyre with only 47 ggs
Put a fuel can on as well it's good value and sounds better
