This site is for people who love, admire, want, are curious about or are just interested in the BSA GP VICTOR motorcycle, a British scrambles bike built in 1965 and 1966, replicas of a machine used by Jeff Smith to win the World 500cc Moto-Cross Championship in 1964 and 1965.In all 468 GPs were built over the period summer 1965 to autumn 1966. Over a third of the bikes went to continental europe and about a hundred to the Americas. Jeff Smith says 500 were built . ( He signed the tanks for £1 each and received £500). The Register currently contains the names of over 80 Custodians of GPs gathered over the last 10 years or so - there is no fee or other obligation other than to enjoy a lovely little piece of engineering from a moment in time when a lot of threads were drawn together to make what is virtually a works replica bike.
What do you have? Why not join the Register - just email me firstname.lastname@example.org with frame and engine number- there is no cost involved. I don't store or display any details other than what is shown plus your email address which is for my use only.
Do you know the history and whereabouts of the works Victors; the whereabouts of the titanium bikes? Wouldn't it be good to see them from time to time. If anyone has knowledge for example of magnesium parts, frames with an extra lug, steel re-inforced rear lugs, crankcases stamped CD or CDE please let me know.I am interested in any bits for sale.
I have one of the original 67/68 factory frames - chain adjustment at the front of the swinging arm; fore-runner of the B50 frame. It is hoped to build this into a complete bike if I can find enough bits ;I still need yokes (I managed to aquire a pear-shaped engine and a pair of magnesium fork sliders which accept B50 stanchions) - I promise to show this bike - not hide it. Vic Vaughan has just completed his similar bike used in the 1966 World Championship - the bike has now been sold to a museum in Paris.
