The Star and Garter / Help with Funeral Send off
« on: 10 July, 2022, 19:11:32 »
Posting for Patrick Jarrett .... Can anyone help???
We unexpectedly lost our father 2 weeks ago and we are trying our best to do him proud .
I have managed to check the reg of his old BSA Lightning and was absolutely blown away to learn it is still insured so likely on the road .
If the stars align and Iím able to make contact with the current owner I would like to ask if they would be happy to join us for my dads final ride . I know itís a big ask ! But wouldnít it be wonderful! .
Equally if any other riders (of old or new) would be free on the morning of dads funeral and are local enough to Dudley in the West Midlands we would be delighted if you would also be kind enough to join us for dads last ride .
Thank you so much for reading I know itís a big ask 🙏🏻
If anyone would be kind enough to help celebrate my dads love of all things 2 wheels please reach out to me
Details are
YEAR : 1965
Date of funeral 19th July 10am
departing DY2 0DA in Dudley at about 9:20am
Then heading to
Waseley hills crematorium
This will be about a 15 minute ride
Thank you again

The Star and Garter / Photo Albums on Website
« on: 14 December, 2021, 09:44:01 »
For those that have not spotted it - a new feature on the website is a number of photo albums showing copies from the Club's library.  Access to these is via the Members Area - so another good reason to join the Club.  Currently there are about half a dozen albums (Covering military / scooters / Police and Twins) - but more will be added shortly (when there is time!) .... in total there are just short of 1000 photo's scanned and being put into albums.

The Star and Garter / Clutch Parts
« on: 05 July, 2021, 18:51:49 »
On Behalf of Ken Griggs ...
I've been tidying the garage, and came across a box of old clutch bits.  There are approximately 20-30 clutch plates (plain and friction) in various states. I think they are BSA, but not sure. Free to a good home (collect only Rishton). If nobody wants them, they're going in the recycling skip.

You can message Ken via Facebook ....

The Star and Garter / What do you think of the website?
« on: 14 August, 2020, 16:55:14 »
I did ask the question before, but think it got lost in the middle of something else! ... so ... any thoughts on the website and the recent updates and additions?  Anything you would like to see? Anything you find tricky to use?  Feedback would be appreciated (but please be constructive  :)  )
(I ought to declare an interest - as I've been helping Rob by scanning in and preparing library material and other bits for the website).

« on: 08 July, 2020, 16:59:25 »
For those that haven't spotted it, there is now a "BSA Range" tab on the website home page.  Under this are images of all the BSA models since 1911 (well, the ones we have catalogue copies for) .... just select the year and you can see the models for then.  Hopefully a useful reference - or just interesting to browse (especially some of the prewar ones).
