1966 BSA Hornet

Full Description


The hornet was introduced into America to compete against the very successful Triumph TT Specials that had been tearing up scrambles courses from coast to coast.  Dallas Baker had a fair measure of success on one of three Hornets and raced out of Irv Seaver Motorcyles in Santa Ana.  The bike is very heavy and produces only moderate horsepower. Not made for motocross, it was considered a great T.T. or flat track contender.  Restored to exacting, concourse standards by Don Harrell, a premier British bike expert.
