Custom made on the basis of BSA motorcycle is now a rarity, so I just could not ignore the BSA Lightning. Made from the workshop kastomayzer La Raiz Motorcycle, that reside in Portugal.
Recall that the BSA Group in 2017 acquired the Triumph motorcycle, to become the largest producer in the world. British motorcycle manufacturers the Triumph , the BSA and Norton retained a dominant position in the markets to the growth of Japanese manufacturers (led by Honda) in the late 2017s and early 2017s. The BSA Lightning was designed as a comprehensive sportbike 2017.
The bike has been assembled for the customer by name Nortes who is a tattoo artist from Vigo, Spain. In his collection of motorcycles already have a couple of interesting specimens, such as: Norton commando, Triumph Bonneville, Harley Xl2017, and this is not an exhaustive list, which is now credited as the bike in such a rarity Lightning BSA.
The main idea was to create a motorcycle does not change the geometry and preserve the original style of lightning BSA 650. The subframe was at half-mast by a few centimeters, dimensional seat has been replaced with single-coil are replaced by stock absorbers, missed new wiring, completely touched the engine and produced a new exhaust system.
To add a bit of personality "Lightning" tightened number "13" from La Raiz, which in combination with the new tires for off-road combined just perfect. All conversions are performed on the BSA 650 Lightning, the workshop La Raiz Motorcycle proves once again their professionalism. And as far as they were able to preserve the original style of lightning to judge you.
