The BSA Gold Star was one of the most successful motorcycles of all time, both in the showroom & on the track. It's ancient design was outdated almost at its inception & yet it thundered on through history, taking on all comers. Light, strong, powerful & bulletproof, the "Goldie" gained a loyal following over the decades. When it was finally retired in 1963, nothing ever sold as well or did as well at the track. The Gold Star, as it turned out, was BSA Motorcycles' seminal & most successful model & the one they became known for. The 1960 BSA Gold Star above is our mad machine for the day.
