Kickstart Ep.3: Selling a 1967 BSA Thunderbolt Motorcycle

1967 BSA Thunderbolt

The BSA Thunderbolt has been bought, ridden, and now it is time to sell it. A little clean-up is in order before the classic motorcycle goes on the market to make it more desirable, but that is the easy part. The challenge will be fetching a fair price for the Thunderbolt and not lose money on the deal.

A British manufacturer established in 1861, BSA was at one time the world’s largest motorcycle producer before going defunct in 1972. NADA price guide values the ’67 Thunderbolt from $2,645 for bikes in “good” condition, all the way up to $11,930 for prime examples that are in “excellent” condition.

Welcome to a new video series, entitled Kickstart, where we buy, ride and sell a classic motorcycle in 36 hours. In Episode #1, Roman bought a 1967 BSA Thunderbolt, which runs great and starts up every time, for $3,400. Episode #2 we see what it’s like to ride a 50 year old British motorcycle.

Check out Episode #3 and see if Roman is able to sell the Thunderbolt at a fair price. Or selling an old British motorcycle just doesn’t play well in Colorado.
