Robert D BSA / Triumph

Who would think they would be collectibles...

Back in the early 60's, when me,and, most of my friends did not have a lot of money,we could pick up a "basket case" Triumph or BSA for almost no money.Enlist the help of friends,and, get them running, sort of... My first was a BSA / 350 "one lunger", second, a 650 Triumph. Again, both were basket cases,that cost very little. Who would ever think that all these years later, they would be collectible. My financial circumstances are a bit different now, and, I am fortunate to have a number of cars / motorcycle. When I share stories about cars / bikes I have owned, often said is "you should have kept them". Back then, having one car that ran on a regular basis was an accomplishment! Not having much when I was younger motivates me to keep what I have now in show condition, always...... Some people might say, "to a fault".....
