’68 BSA 441 Victor

Depending on who you talk to and experience with the big BSA single, motorcycle was either known as the or, more often than the BSA Victim. For a short period of about six months, a BSA 441 lived in our

My step dad lived and breathed motorcycles, it didn’t matter if it was in shape, running but ratty, a restoration project, or a box of parts some of them said in England, if it had two wheels and was made in it found a home with At one point it got so bad that we took the carport at my Grandmother’s house.

You have seen the look on her when she came home a weekend away only to her backyard full of motorcycles and a of guys building walls her carport…hey, she never used the for anything but piling up junk, we changed out the junk. That is the BSA 441 Victim spent its last in our keep.

We acquired this particular BSA a friend of a friend of a friend in for a seized up Greeves dirtbike, we we got the better of the deal. The 441 was complete? It needed tires, the seat a headlight, handlebars, compression lever (vital on the 441!!), start lever and foot is gonna be easy” says Sure enough, within a or two we had all the parts, the bike was stripped for cleaning and we had high hopes for BSA.

Every evening work and school Michael and I be found out in the garage making motorcycle road ready.

At the end of just one short month a nice looking and finally BSA 441 Victor rolled out of the garage and the light of day. The driveway was other English bike ( Michael’s friends), all with beers in hand ready to the lighting off of the beast. Michael’s friend and self proclaimed on BSA singles, Stanley, was giving the on ‘the drill’.

The ‘drill’ is how to a BSA 441…turn the motor over to past TDC, pull in the release, give a mighty and it’ll fire right toss you over the handlebars it kicks back! Two good men found themselves on the ground the BSA standing there rather Everybody took their to no avail, the 441 sat there quietly. The round of beers were we all needed it, and the BSA still stood

After everybody got bored and we tried one more time…did the planted a motocross boot on the slammed the lever down Hey…it runs. We kept the throttle to keep it running we didn’t trust it to start

Michael took off down the wheelied it in second gear and around the corner. I could that bike blocks As the sound faded, I headed into the garage for another and waited for my turn to ride the

Twenty minutes later I see a guy one tennis shoe and one motocross walking up the street. Put the old 2-10 and some rope in the back of the and go get the bike. Yeah, we tried to it a couple of times before it in the back but it just sat there at us.

We eventually got the hang of starting the for fun we started putting empty cans up on the wall for each one of us got pitched by the bike. I actually the bike quite a bit, in a term sort of way, and I to tell you, I was not impressed. it was fast and it sounded really but, push it hard and the was not happy.

This thing more than a guy looking at in a mirror at the gym, the suspension was Coors beer and the electrical is the stuff of bad dreams. The BSA 441 Victor may won two world motocross championships, but the version is nothing like championship bike. However…when it when the electrical system was and you weren’t trying to win a motocross (or trying to go fast on a trail), the 441 was a bike to ride.

Within its limits, it really was a motorcycle. The BSA also had a very cool factor, those knew about the bike and difficulties admired you for riding of a cool factor I should say it had a factor.

BSA 441′s have themselves a bit of a cult following and a nice one can command a decent I found a really clean one morning on ebay. It’s a model with only miles. It looks to have well cared for and is ready to right now. The owner give a whole of info but you can contact him to learn more.

Would I want to own another 441 No. Would I like to ride else’s? Absolutely. Like I within its limit’s the Victor is a fun

One more thing about the 441 WILL make an awesome racer. Click on the pic’s to see of this really nice
