Bet­ter late than never

Old Bike Australasia - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

27 years ago I pur­chased a worn out but com­plete BSA M24 Gold Star 500cc mo­tor at Dunolly in Cen­tral Vic­to­ria. When my dad found out he told me to hurry up and get it go­ing be­fore he was too old to ride it. As the years moved on and two di­vorces and an ar­son at­tack fin­ished my busi­ness, dad said “hurry up and get it go­ing be­fore I am too old to start it”. Well, I got it go­ing and on club rego just af­ter dad’s 90th birth­day. Although too frail to start it and not con­fi­dent to ride it, here is my dad Bill re-liv­ing mem­o­ries of his younger days. It may not be a gen­uine Goldie but it is a nice bike to ride.
