In the early 60’s, BSA’s race team was developing a large single in the hopes of winning the 500cc world motocross championship. A 441cc engine ended up being the ticket, which helped BSA capture the 500cc championship in ’64 and ’65. The following year, the company released the BSA Victor 441 Special to the public.
“The 441 single is a rare jewel of simplicity and a masterpiece of performance.” – Cycle, April 1968
Well, the only thing is, the Victor is normally a teeth-chattering dual-sport. Reader Steve F. called it “for grins per dollar, probably the most fun Brit bike out there.” The seller of this bike has made that fun more accessible on the street by turning this Victor into a cafe racer, a move that will probably piss off some purists. It’s undergone a claimed full restoration and runs great.
