Hugh Mackie and Fumihisa Matsueda over at Sixth Street Specials in NYC took a neglected and rusted up BSA A7 and pumped new life in her for Cafe Racer on Discovery HD.

With a heart transplant of a cammed up and hot rodded BSA A10 Super Rocket engine and more original 60's cafe bling than one could imagine, the bike was transformed into a Rocker's wet dream. Some of the goodies include period clip-ons, original Dunstall exhaust, a tank from The Tank Shop in Scotland and one off rear sets.

Needless to say I'm thrilled with the bike and thought I'd share my first BSA with you guys.

Thanks man! I've never owned a bike I didn't have a hand in before so it'll be a new experience just getting on it and going. Then again, it is a) old and b) British..so I'm guessing I'll be in the guts of it soon enough.

I don't know about that those A10's are bullet proof . I rode the piss outa mine for years without having to tear into her . My only issue was the Generator sucked ass
