Topic: This is mine.

My oldest bike is this 1926 BSA 350cc

BSA

It's ohv, 3 speed, hand change, lever throttle and lit by gas.
I'm having problems with the brake lights at the moment and find it difficult to light without stopping and before using it!

Re: This is mine.

my 1955 Triumph T100

T100

It's a pre-unit all alloy T100 twin, 498 cc (plus rebores).
I bought it for £17 10/- in 1966 - the seller wanted £20 and I offered £15.
It's been on the road ever since I'd sorted the magneto out when I first got it.
