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.

BSA 1931 G31-12 1000cc SV World Tour
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. The task of restoring this bike gave Marcin some of his largest headaches, without the shed loads of money poured into this project. Most people would give up on first sight. Marcin's father manufactured a complete new wooden framework for the sidecar.

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.
(via MotArt: Honeymoon Journey on a Motorcycle)

A credit to his workmanship. The finished machine is in a word " Stunning". Many parts supplied by Cornucopia Enterprises ( Germany ).

Charlies GOLD STAR DB 500

1937 BSA M20
There are three BSA models that most BSA fans do not know exist!
The USA export model A10 ( Super Flash), the 1934 BSA 500cc OHV Special and the 1937-38 BSA M20/21, not the same as the 1939 Model !

A valued customer, Charlie Crocco lives in Willow Grove Pennsylvania USA has a farm, occupation is Period Landscape Gardner, he is also a BSA Freak, loves his GOLD STARS. He Rented out a piece of his land to a Bob Staufer ( the previous owner of Charlies farm ). Bob was a very wealthy man ( unknown to Charlie ) made his fortune from the age of 16 as Excavator ( Digger Driver ). Being a member of the local M/Cycle Club in the 1950s, he built ( Dug Out ) a 1/4 Mile Race Banked Track behind his farm. Evidence of the Grandstands can be seen today! Charlie knew very little about Bob, often he would call on Charlie and admire the various Gold Stars and talk for hours about old times. Charlie would often help him out with various jobs ( at that time Bob was 75/80 years old ). One day he arrived and said i have somthing you may be interested in. They drove to Bobs enormous mansion, there sat a 1937 BSA M20 almost 100% Original. ( O.K. the Tappet Cover has been replaced with a M21 1950 item with logo) This is a unbelivible rare machine, never seen one as original as this example ( anyone seen a better version? ). This was a hand change model, all that was missing was a tool box and the correct rear lamp. ( Some twenty years ago the National M/C Museum tried very hard to buy it! Bob says to Charlie, it is yours for all the help in the past you have given, some money did change hands, thats the kind of guy Charlie is! Chalie asked where did you buy it? Bob Staufer was a real character, he was in the US Army and based during the war somewhere in England ( pity the area was not known ). He won the BSA in a card game in 1945, stayed till 1949 and had it shipped to Willow Grove Air Force Base Pennsylvania, in the hanger where the Prancing Tiger Squad was based. He turned it over every month, changed the green on the tank as green is unluckey. The Engine was checked and seems to have done not more than 3.500 miles. For some unknown reason Bob never rode the bike, just thought it was nice to look at. Sadly Bob was murdered, over $200 dollers, someone beat him to death with a piece of Wood ! A sad end to a very interesting man. Charlie started to restore the M20 some 15 Years ago, Cornucopia Enterprises supplied few parts for the M20 & The Gold Stars. Restoration work is still going on, keeping the original parts I.E the ex pipe and silencer.

Peter Long

We look forward to more photos in the future

1934 350cc BSA R34 de Luxe
Owner Myles Raymond Glasgow Scotland
Bought on Ebay 2015 ( so called restored) but Myles liked the look ! ( like half a J12 )
BSA produced very few and was not very popular with the Public.
So very few come up for Sale.
He did not think his chances were good, as it was a pretty looking Bike.
Luckily not a lot of bidding. ( poss to near Christmas ? )
So it was purchased for a lot less than its worth.
But a lot of time and money was invested to get it right.
Wrong Clutch, poor Indian made Levers, Electrical & Carb Problems.
In the End, as you can see, a wonderfull Example of a rare BSA.
Myles has a few other Projects on the Way, we are sure they will be completed to the same high Standard.

PS. 2019 a Valve danced on the Piston !

BSA Sloper 1933 M33-10
Great History for this Classic Machine.
My Involvement with AGF 201 started in 1994 when i purchased the Bike from a Farmers Wwidow in Ilminster, Somerset England.
The Bike was discovered as a Barn find.
Surprisingly after a good clean the Bike fired up !
Research through the BSA Owners Club revealed Records that showed the Bike as been built as a M33-10 5.95 HP Side Valve, despatched to Torquay Post Office on 28th April 1933. Part of a batch of 31 Combinations, registered AGF 180-210.
My father was a time served engineer, he restored the Petrol Tank, manufactured a Tool Box from old Biscuit Tins.
(see Photo), Pushrod Tubes also missing.
So he used some Bathroom Towel Rails, still in use today.
After 25 years the first mechanical Failure.

Interestingly the hand change on the L / Hand side!
A few parts missing, CORNUCOPIA just supplied the Oil Tank:

I bought this Indian in bits when I was 28, got as far as restoring the Frame, Forks & Petrol Tank in 2000. But little Time, sold it to Cord Cordes 2017
Peter Long

Cords Cordes prächtige Restaurierung von meiner 1935 1200cc Big Chief Model 335. Ausgestattet mit Alu-Sport Zylinderköpfen, SPITDORF-Magneto, Schalldämpfer ( mit Schmetterling Klappe), Schebler DLX 108 Vergaser. Ich kaufte die Indian in Teilen, als ich 28 war, und war im Jahr 2000 soweit, dass ich den Rahmen, die Gabeln und den Benzintank restauriert hatte. Aber wegen zu wenig Zeit, verkaufte ich die Indian 2017 an Cord Cordes.

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
