I purchasrd a Spitfire in the spring of 1958, Regreated ever selling it. was the coolest bike I ever owned. Paid a total of 623.00 for it . I raced in several scrambles around IA and IL.Wish I could find one today! Thanks for letting me air out. Ken S
I’m reconnecting with my motorcycle roots. Recently met some local old timers that own BSA racers–one has this bike! Maybe a different year, but an A10 Spitfire Scrambler, for sure. Also has a Gold Star Catalina like the one I had back in the ’60s. file:///C:/Users/Td/Documents/Wpdocs/Ranch/Motorcycle/Rod%20Todd%20BSA%20Gold%20Star.html
I am also reconnecting with some older guys I used to ride with, It must be an age related thing, I’m 73, started riding the dirt in 1964 with a .500 Matchless, went through a .500 Velo, a 441 Beeza, a couple of Jap bikes for the desert then hung it up in 1985, foreever I thought, then In a fit of nostalgia I lost control of myself last year and bought a restored 68 Triumph T120R Bonnie. For the street of all things.
It’s great fun, except everytime I fire her up I remember the great riding buddies I’ve lost since then. I wish they were here.
