I was asked the other day if I had another project lined up after I finish my 105e Rod, I said no forgetting about this BSA winged wheel project I have had for a while. The chap i've been getting the parts from takes so long sending the correct parts i'd forgotten about it. (one man in a shed I think) Anyway its a BSA star rider bicycle from 1963 which my mate Mark go for me. Sorry Mark for chopping it up but you know me!. It has a 1953 BSA winged wheel fitted in it. If you have never heard of one it a 32cc 2-stoke engine fitted inside the back wheel. Heres a couple of pics i've found .anyone else have a strange bicycle project.

That is well cool, really like the tank:tup:

Do you need to register it with the DVLA to use it on the road?

Evil that's evil !!! Very cool, lets have more details. Take it being electric your okay using it out and about?
Early Basman with a few mods sent up to Uncle Bunts in Leicester for the leccy conversion, legal on the road as it's still classed as a bicycle (Nigel calls them 'bar hoppers' ) I haven't got it back yet but the text after test run was 'Fuuukin L does it shift !'.
About 10 mile range just using the battery but pedaling as well it should be good for miles.

Yes it will need registering, It has an engine number and the bike has a frame number so should'nt be a problem.
This guy had to register his mountain bike, looks like there are a few hoops to jump through but is doable:
