1951 BSA C11 / Tim Harney Motorcycles


The bike was literally a pile of broken bolts and bent metal, Brooklyn resident Tim Harney tells us. Hidden inside its warped cases, however, beat the heart of a 1951 BSA C11.

Tim gutted the BSA from top to bottom, and rebuilt it with a few tasteful upgrades. He’s also spent time on the engine, which has been re-sleeved, balanced, shimmed, tightened and polished.

There’s all-new, handcrafted aluminium bodywork too, but Tim avoided doing anything wacky. I wanted to stay within the vocabulary of the original bike, he explained — via Bike EXIF
