The BSA “Prima”

Regular readers of this forum will have seen my rebuild thread for this bike. Here's a link if you want to take another look - and see many more pictures:


You'll see that it is a little too big for me, sadly. So I have decided to sell it to somebody who it fits – and will get some enjoyment from riding it.

It has been rebuilt from the ground up and is complete with all period correct fittings, all in all a stunning recreation of this rare BSA model.
