Spe­cial Beezer

Classic Dirtbike - - Letters -

My fa­ther-in-law Al­bert Ste­wart has a 1971 works BSA B50 that, af­ter a bit of dig­ging, was be­lieved to be one of those in the Von Her­estien col­lec­tion.

A cou­ple of years ago we were rac­ing at the Clas­sic des Na­tions in Read­ing when Al­bert met Jeff Smith and showed him a few pic­tures that, at the time, we thought might be one of his bike. Jeff was ea­ger to have a look at the bike, but it was back home in North­ern Ire­land, at which point Jeff stated we might have ‘ some­thing spe­cial’ there.

Al­bert is com­ing over as al­ways for the show and asked if any of the lads could bring it over with them (which they can). As stated in the last copy of CDB you are go­ing to put on a col­lec­tion of 1971 BSA work bikes and Al­bert won­dered if you would like to in­clude it.

I also be­lieve Jeff Smith is at­tend­ing and could give us a bit more in­sight, as from that con­ver­sa­tion a Read­ing he be­lieved he may have had a hand in build­ing it.

That’s a great look­ing bike and one we should be hav­ing in the magazine Ian.
