What Is Your Favorite Vintage Motorcycle Brand?


With all the original British motorcycles company's long out of business, the debate is still going on over 60 years later. Which company, as a whole, produced the best handling, quality, style, and reliable motorcycle from the 1950's through the 1970's? Whats your favorite brand? Mine happens to be BSA for many reasons.. Let us know what you think by commenting below! Remember, there is no "correct" answer, just opinions and we want to hear yours.

    My favorite is my 1970, blue and chrome, unmolested A65L BSA. At age 70 I only ride locally for short distances. It fools me into believing I am in my 20s again.

    I have owned a Triumph 250 Trailblazer, Tiger 500 and a BSA Lightning with Devimead conversion. However I bought my dream bike, the LAST BSA, a Triumph Hurricane in 1983. Hardly ridden it in over 35 years. I am ashamed of that…..

    I’m a Norton lover. Classy smooth excellent handling Comandos are my favorites for over 40 years now. My Triumph Bonnie was a blast, I love the classy BSAs, I trust my BMWs and feel very relaxed and comfortable on my FLHTCU. My 250DT is always ready for a little adventure and is great for keeping my riding skills sharp. There are few motorcycles I dislike really. But give me a curvey Comando roller coaster ride and I know why I’m alive. Mmmmm adrenaline. )
