As a post script to the BSA that Alf rode story, we have great pleasure in disclosing that the machine will have its original registration number returned.

Registered in Dundee in 1959 as JTS139, the number was sold separately from the bike and after negotiations between the owner of the machine and the owner of the registration a deal was done and the BSA had its identity returned. A true happy ending!
