Default BSA 441 Board Track Racer kinda sorta.

Well I found my way back to a British bike build. Been a while. Missed posting stuff here when I do other stuff, feels like somethings missing from my day. Sooo this should be a very neat one. I did mostly bobbers before, then I was in Cafe' land with a few builds & now I can do one Ive really been wanting to for a while. A single in the board track vibe.

Heres a few parts waiting...





Let the weird fun begin! (No, it wont be strait up board tracker, but the influence will be there a lot.)

Its a brooks seat, search brooks bicycle seat theyve made them forever up until present. The really cool thing is the bottom, Ill take a pic. Theres no supportthe leather just is stretched between to rivets in the back & the tip of seat, & you can adjust the tension.

I will do it to it.
The "it" being a fairly nice 441. Its the first bike I feel bad dissecting. But its nice starting with a clean motor, nice hubs & brakes, & the BSA tank will be lengthened & narrowed. It is to stay true to its BSA nature to a point.

Swooshdave, Ill post it, but I swear the first person that flames me for wacking up a perfectly good 441 is gonna get a wet willie. It looks nicer in pictures, really.
The left over parts are going to a good home to help somebody else restore one.

And yes, the Van sports Pink stars. & since the picture pinstripes.

Nobody is going to lose any sleep over a 441. Although that looks like a home market tank…

He did replace the stock tank. He thought is was from a C15 or something. Yes, I love the tank, the body lines on the side are nice. Itll be reused. Just changed a bit.
