Sometimes you just nailed it. I went after a motorcycle ad, just too see a BMW R100R for a friend, that was out of town. And this is what i saw. The man, Joze is an older man, he looks a little clumsy, without teeth, but … there’s always but… but damn, his motorcycle collection is talking a whole different story. A story of passion for motorcycles, for vintage races and a passion for building his own racing machines.
Whan i came into the workshop, the first thing i Saw was this beautiful BSA.

After this first impressions we went further in his garage to actually find BMW he was selling. So there we are, on the red carpet stood 10 vintage motorcycles, all in a pretty good condition. Another three BSA motorcycles, two of them fully restored and one in pretty good original suit.
