Following a rework of "The Musket" last year, New Yorker and Brooklynite, Maxwell Hazan presents his latest project with the "BSA A50" motorcycle (BSA is short for Birmingham Small Arms Company, a British brand that used to be the largest motorcycle producer in the world during the late 1950s).
A notable two-time winner of the “Bike of the Year” award, Hazan's world-class meticulous craftsmanship continues to impress, as each and every component, excluding the engine on the "BSA A50" is handmade. Utilizing a 1966 "A50" engine for its core foundation, the motorcycle's clean and shiny aesthetic is achieved through the parts and cabling hidden throughout its frame. A balloon-shaped classic BSA motor, in addition to the gas tank is essentially fused into the frame to refine the bike's overall profile. Furthermore, below the tank is a repurposed sediment bowl from a tractor, which feeds fuel through its hand-formed aluminum lines.
Other notable details consist of a modified harley hub situated at the front, an adapted Honda "CB350" front drum brake on the rear hub, as well as a translucent aspirator bottle that now showcases the movement of the bike's liquid.
