Nice work! I love that old school look but with the hi-tech bells and whistles. I can even live with the speedo. Good job guys!

Most importantly. Who is the artist performing the cover music; "house of the rising sun" originally by the Animals. This is probably the best version I have ever heard, please help.Now to the restoration, brilliant, fantastic, excellent. There are not enough words to describe the excellent work done here, and what a fantastic end result, and great sound. All credit to BSA and the restoration team, thanks guys for keeping the brand alive....

That ain't no Thunderbolt. I know- I have one and it's got only 1 carb. What you have there is a LIghtning, unless you stuck a Lightning head on a T-Bolt motor. I you did, then did you also change the cams? If not then adding a second carb isn't going to do much good. Otherwise, it's a beautiful bike. Where did you ever get that gorgeous gas tank? And those forks! They're massive!

Correct Alexander, I did change the Single carb thunderbolt head to a lightning head,
I also changed the cam to a mild cam with 9.5 compression pistons and I had some porting done as well, I got the gas tank from Mat at speed and sport In Northern California a great place for all kinds of vintage parts, and the front end I made from Suzuki GSX R 1000 fork tubes and a one off triple clamp that my father-in-law made. I really wasn't trying to go for something period Correct with this build, it was more about Building something fun to ride.

The bike was so bad, it killed the company.
