Derek - Ha!  I don't think he ever jumped a fence fleeing the Germans. He'd certainly have shared that story with me!  However, he actually did own a 1953 Triumph while in Europe, as well.  I've got registration paperwork but no photos of that bike.  He bought the Triumph in 1956 for $200 USD. Chassis number was 38829.  Finding that actual bike (if it still exists) would be and epic feat!  Wish I had the chassis numbers on the BSA.  Cheers!

Excellent!  Thanks for the feedback.  Truly appreciate it. 

Regarding the photo, itís my favorite all-time pic of my father.  It demonstrates both his sense of adventure and discriminating taste in motorcycles!

Dean - Thanks for the reply.  Unfortunately, he sold that bike before he returned to the US (and just a few years before I was born).  As such, I don't have any more detail on the bike (this photo and my moms stories are my only clues).  Dad passed many years ago so - again - not a lot to go on.  However, your insight is really helpful.  Now to see if I can count the number of fins from that photo!

Which BSA do you ride? / Anyone Know the Year/Model of this BSA?

I'd appreciate any help to identify the year and specific model of the BSA in this photo.  The photo was taken of my father in 1955 or 1956 aboard a BSA that he owned while serving in the Air Force in Chaumont, France.  Anyone able to identify it?  I'm hoping to find a similar year/model for eventual restoration.  Thank you!
