1969 A75 BSA Rocket 3. I bought this bike in 1993 from Morgantown and used it for a few months. It ran fine and everything worked well. I was going to convert it to a X75 Hurricane and started to take it apart. I now have far too many projects and have decided to sell it. Genuine 17,000 miles. Clean PA title. It is complete apart from front fender, chain guard, hangers for mufflers. There is a complete exhaust system (made in the UK). New cables. If I get time, I will get the bike running.

Very few of these classics are still around. Don't miss out out on this one

Items presented here are from a large estate of antiques and collectibles acquired over several generations. Many of them are electrical and mechanical in nature ( e.g., phones, radios, fans, meters, televisions, typewriters, etc.), associated with technology as well as "Americana", and span the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. I will attempt to list new items each week as time will allow. I got this BSA from a friend of mine 12 or so years ago. It was purchased at a J. Wood and Co. auction shortly before that. It has been registered in N.H. for that period and ridden only several times, having less than 300 miles -260 or so by me- since it was totally restored as stated on the auction note card. It has also been kept indoors in a heated garage. The handlebars I believe are the American market high riser type. The seat is original to the bike - "BSA" still intact - and is in very nice condition. The headlight bezel has some minor pitting to it- visible in the photo- as well as the kick start arm and one of the exhaust stays- all of which are visible in the photos. I did purchase new foot peg covers but have yet to put them on - the left peg cover is split on the end. All of the electrical components are in working order- horns included- and the ignition, I was told, was upgraded to electronic. The brake/running light has a stress mark in it that I am not sure would be visible in the photos. There is some crazing to the rubber around the speedometer and tachometer, though not serious. I did replace the tires. I took a very short video to demonstrate it in running condition, though it had not quite warmed up yet. The outer gas lines and filters were replaced a couple of weeks ago and a new battery and plugs installed. The exhaust pipes are in beautiful condition with no visible imperfections save for bluing on the sections coming out of the heads. There is an owners manual, parts book, and repair guide to go with it. Feel free to ask questions or perhaps request additional photos. I certainly don't do it justice having ridden an average of 20 miles a year! Although it is really a pretty object just to admire on display. As you can probably see, the engine has not been polished to a bright metallic shine; which is what I prefer, though others may disagree. It probably was a lot shinier when I got it, but, I just don't remember. Get your own valid XHTML YouTube embed code
1969 BSA Rocket Iii , An excellent unbuggered example of the first year Rocket 3. Matching numbers. Owned since 1993. When purchased it had been in storage and the motor was stuck. The top end was removed the and freed. The reason it wouldn't turn over is that is the rings on one piston were stuck. I stripped the paint, installed new valves, guides, spring and unleaded seats . Then I lost interest. Included are the original standard pistons, which appear in good usable condition, a new set of Hepolite Std rings, and a gasket set. The cylinder appears in good condition with one small fin at the bottom missing. The sheet metal is all there with no dents. All is there except the items named in the description. It shows only 7800 miles on the clock. I have no knowledge of it ever being crashed. I honestly think if the top end was reinstalled it would run. Also included is an original BSA factory Rocket 3 Workshop manual and a Haines Workshop manual. Wouldn't need much to be an excellent piece. I have ply and can crate and ship if you are not local $5,500.00
