Tracking Down a Very Special BSA

Classic enthusiast John King is seeking help in tracking down his Shooting Star BSA to celebrate his 60-year diamond anniversary. He recently reached out to Old Bike Mart to explain his situation:

“In 1960, I bought a BSA A7 Shooting Star and later that year my fiancé and I were married, on July 23, 1960, 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 60 years, celebrating our diamond wedding anniversary. It would be marvellous if we could make contact with the current owner of the bike with a view to having our photograph taken with the old bike, 60 years on.”

According to the DVLA database, the Shooting Star was last issued a new registration document in September 2018. If you know anything that might help John with his romantic reunion, please email us at news.views@footmanjames.co.uk and we’ll make sure your message is passed on to the team at Old Bike Mart.
