Worryingly, based on that photo, Tex and I could almost be twins.

Alas, Rock, the BSA had died some years previously. 1971 saw the last of the R3 a horrible thing with wire headlamp brackets and white frame. The three cylinders died for a bit (all the triple engines were made at Small Heath) until NVT began producing them again with the disc brake and five speed box (hence the T150V). They were made at Small Heath, so itโ€™s a BSA in all but name.

Edit: The 1971 R3. How they could take that beautiful 1969, in ruby red with the ray guns, and turn it into this defeats me.ย
