1968 BSA Firebird Scrambler

Congratulations to Victor Tripple of Long Beach for winning Bike of the Month with his 1968 BSA Firebird Scrambler.

The bike is 100% original unrestored with only 6600 miles on the clock. Although the bike has original paint, it has a new clear coat and new decals. The only other thing that has been replaced are the tires.

I don't have a lot of history or data on this bike. Victor has owned it for about 7 years, it originally came from Michigan.

Thank you Victor for bringing it to our meet.

I shot a lot of photos in our March Gallery.
