Classic Bike Guide reader John King is trying to track down his old BSA for a romantic reunification. Could you help him?

John writes: “I’m hoping for readers’ help. 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.” 

The Shooting Star is still on the DVLA database and a new registration document was issued in September 2018. Can you help him find his old Beesa? Contact us today and we’ll pass on any messages.
