Description

BSA GP Victor The frame is b44 128 numbers 28 of the production line 2nd oldest surviving GP. Lot of new parts engine rebuilt by expert. Bike needs very little to finish. fuel tank bungs and foot rests chain and a view bolts. I have lost interest in it had it over three years and is still unfinished. Although the bike was originally a production Scrambler it was road registered in 1965. The victor went into production in 1966. I don't have the log book as the person I bought the bike of could not put his hands on it. He also knew very little about the bikes history other than the information from the log book. The oil set up has been changed. and has a slightly larger oil tank which is removable. the frame was nickel plated (very old plating) which is not normal for a production 1966 GP Victor – I have blasted the frame lightly and repainted it black as I think it should be. I have contacted the DVLA in Swansea with frame and engine number to obtain the reg. but as I live in Ireland they have referred me to Northern Ireland DVLA. who has told me to contact the DVLA in Swansea so I have come to a dead end there. Frame number B44 128 Engine number B44 161 as left factory. I received Information on bike from GP Victor Register the bike was supplied to Comerfords in October 1965. BSA Dealers in England. I have found some information online about Comerfords. During the 1960. Comerfords where supplied with BSA Machines from the factory which they converted in to competition trials bikes. They supplied to and supported riders in the six days trial events. They Also ran the BSA factory team. the bikes where supplied to Comerfords by the factory but the engines where maintained by the BSA Factory. I spoke to Jock Wilson who rode ISTD trials in the 60. for Comerfords and was a British team member and later manager. he built many ISTD bike for Comerford and agrees that the bigger oil tank was a typical Comerfords modifications that Comerfords would have done to help cool the oil during ISTD events. Trials where more like enduro events in the 60. than modern trials we know today. Jock told me if I got the reg he could confirm if he had built the bike or not. The other interesting thing is. In 1965 Jeff Smith had secured the 500cc motocross world championship half way through the season. the factory phoned Ken Srayson who was working for Reynolds to build a small number of frames for the BSA competition department for its works team. He was instructed to build the frames as close to the b44 as possible. The BSA management had told Jeff Smith to ride a production bike for the rest of 1965 season to boost interest in the GP Victor which was to be released in 1966. This frame is bronze welded (GP Victors had the then new mig welding process in 66) with the number stamped on the side of the frame and nickel plated as where the ones Ken Sprayson had made. So could be a competition department machine that was sent to Comerford to use. Still a rare bike in its own right not matter what its history is BSA B44 GP Victor.
