READER JOHN KING is trying to track down his old BSA for a romantic reunification.
John writes: “I’m hoping for readers’ help. In 1960, I bought a BSA A7 Shooting Star and later that year my fiancée and I were married, on July 23, in Chester.
“Following the wedding reception, we set off on our honeymoon to Minehead, Somerset, on the A7 Shooting Star, registration number YTC 843.
“Later this year we will have been married for 60 years, celebrating our diamond wedding anniversary. It would be marvellous if we could make contact with the current owner with a view to having our photograph taken with the old bike, 60 years on.”
The Shooting Star is still on the DVLA database and a new registration document was issued in September 2018. Can you help him find his old Beesa? Contact CBG and we’ll pass on any messages.
