1952 BSA Motorbike


Shudder, shudder … this motorbike traversed many corrugated roads as it took Max Wellstead to dances in the 1950s. As Max remembers: “You’d dress here, at 4 o’clock in the afternoon, after feeding the horses and then you’d ride 82 miles to Borden or Salt River to go to a dance, and when the medley was played at midnight, you would then get on your bike and ride it home. You’d be here in time to feed the horses and go mustering.” This motorbike has certainly seen some action!
