1972 BSA Lightning 650
Congratulations to Dave Zamiska of Huntington Beach for winning Bike of the Month with his 1972 BSA Lightning 650. They won a Mr. Pete's Grill gift certificate provided by Mr. Pete's Grill.

Dave won once before in August 2011 with his 1954 BSA A7-500 Shooting Star.

1972 was the last year of production for BSA motorcyles.

Dave purchased this bike five years ago on E-Bay from the original owner out of Netty West Virginia. It was 100% complete, but very tired and old.

His Chief Mechanic on the project was Steve Wood also of Huntington Beach. They finished the bike about two years ago with new paint, side cases and an NOS exhaust system.

Thanks Dave for bringing it to our meet. See all the photos in our November Gallery.
