My name is Marcin Klimczak and live in Poland.
My Passion are pre war BSA Motorcycles.
All bikes which I've restored by my hands.My idea is " make restoration as good as it's possible". I usually use original parts but sometimes when i've no choice I must use replica. During my adventure with Beezers I bought parts from various dealers / makers. One of them is Cornucopia Enterprises ( Germany ) there stock of Pre War BSA parts is astounding.
Yours Marcin)

Old Bike Club Poland, with its fast growing membership is unique in the fact most members are young ( Ish ). With enthusiasm that sometimes puts other clubs to shame. Marcin's dedecation to originality and perfection is almost a disease, as you can see from the photos. When you consider the wages in Poland for the marjority is lower than some E.U. lands the effort and money that is showered on the BSA's is a credit to Marcin and family.
Motorcycles restored to this standard ( and remember used weekly !) are not everybodies choice but if you consider the lack of spares, the language problem, not to forget the expense ! I think its a tribute to Marcin and family and of course BSA Motorcycles. Marcin is always asked if he will sell any of his collection ( Currently working on a Y13 V. Twin BSA) the answer is always no ! But possibly in 2 or 3 years time Marcin will enter the world of professional restoration. That will ensure more Pre war BSA will grace our roads, keep up the good work.

Type with instrument Panel on Handle Bar, only made for one year. Main part of the bike located in England, Sidecar in Germany. Most parts damaged including Engine, Gearbox, Forks, most parts none original.

Very interesting Story from our friends at the Old Bike Club Poland, from Marcin Klimczak.

From Poland to Shanghai on a BSA G34-14 V-Twin
Halina and Stanislaw Bujakowski were living in Druskininkai, where they’ve met and get married in August 1934. After their marriage, Halina and Stanislaw began an extraordinary journey. Its aim was the farthest point on the map achievable on a motorcycle, from their home in Druskininkai, Poland to Shanghai, China. Their route took them through Europe, Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Persia, India, Burma, Indo-China and finally China. They started the journey on 19th August 1934 with a BSA motorcycle G34-14 model and a sidecar. Stanislaw led motorcycle, Halina was sitting in a basket. With her lap typewriter, she kept a journal as well as sending travel logs back to the national magazines in the form of reports. After returning to Poland in 1937, Halina collected them and wrote chronicle from expedition which hasn’t been released until the 2011.

Fortunately 70 years later, manustcripts were rediscovered and published as a book “My boy, motorcycle and me.
From Druskininkai to Shanghai 1934-1936” edited by Lukasz Wierzbicki.

In 2004 I bought a Triumph 1937 Model 6S. The Machine was totally disassembled except for the Gearbox. Thanks to a Spare Part List from Peter I could check the Completeness. Several Parts were missing or were wrong. Peter was able to help me with the Procurement of many Parts. The remaining Parts I could find at the Eurojumble in Netley Marsh. At the present Time, the Wiring Harness, Headlight and Petrol Tank must be mounted and adjustments made.

Many Thanks to Peter
