Title: How to find My ''Old Boys'' BSA Gold Star Trials bike?
Post by: rhwillia on 20 November, 2017, 02:16:03
Hello Everyone,
I am looking for some assistance in tracing ''FXG 11'' :
I have been trying to find my late fathers BSA Gold Star trials bike, registration FXG 11: but with no luck so far!
He was the first registered keeper way back in April 1956 & then owned the bike again (as the 3rd registered keeper) in the late 1980's/ early 1990's.
Sadly he had to part company with this ,his favourite  bike in the early 1990's & passed away before he could buy it back!
Obviously I would love to know of the bike's current whereabouts; even if to know it is still in one piece!
Any help in discovering its whereabouts would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance of any help.
Cheers,
Roger.

Old Bike Mart have a 'where is it now' section. Published by Mortons. You could also contact all the other free forums for other makes, most collectors have various makes. Years ago you could ask a friendly old Bobby who could look on the PNC, the good old days.  There are also insurance data bases that will have the location, it's a case of finding the right ( or wrong ) person to ask. They called it the ways and means act.

Hi Guys,
Sorry for the delay in reply. (i ve been working away)
I have looked at the DVLA before & tried but failed with ''the friendly'' Bobby approach.... (more than my jobs worth nowadays sadly...)
However, i will try other forums.
I would be very grateful if ''my where is it now'' request appeared in The Star publication!
Thank you once again.
