Very nice - BSA Wayfarer was my 1st bike, in 1968 8)

Didn't look quite like that one though, I rattlecanned it in Ford Pacific Blue metallic :lol:

Good luck with it.

Nelly, those hubs are wicked, you get used to them very quickly. The best bit for me is that the gears and switching are so solid. I have 100% confidence in the drive train and so can worry more about enjoyment.

Cycle along normally in low, kick back just a little and you hear and feel a small click, you're in high then and with this bike and it's gearing its good for a good 25mph+. The brake works well too.

Couple this hub with a nice strong frame like the BSA and you feel total confidence in the bike. The hub also allows for a really clean look to the bike, no rear cables or mechs, just think of the weight savings too.

I would recommend...hmm, do i really want to sell her!

Cool. What I have planned for my Scot isn't a million miles away from what you have done with the BSA. Except of course for the expenditure. You have to keep this bike! I doubt auctioning it on ebay will get you your money back. You've done a brilliant restoration, now enjoy it!
