THE FLYING VICAR ? "WHY" Read The Bottom Of The Listing

1968 BSA Bantam 175 D14, with hand built mobile mechanics side car and picnic trailer to tow behind for shows, displays, runs, picnics etc

This is a rare and unique opportunity to own such a thing, lots of history including old mots, invoiced, photographs etc (Read why The Flying Vicar at the bottom of listing)

She really is a one off and I don't think you will see another, a well thought and and designed build with sympathetic restoration

Sidecar took around a year to design and build, (come's with all tools and equipment as seen inside the sidecar and also on the out side, lot of money has been spent building this outfit and endless time)

Tow along trailer that folds out into a picnic trailer took about 7 months to design and build (comes with everything you see in her kettle, boxes, legs, umbrella, gas stove, lighter etc etc and much more) everything folds and fits inside the trailer, a space for everything with additional room

Spare type on rear of sidecar was lost in transport, it did not fit the sidecar it was just for show so easily replace, it was a 16 or 17 inch tyre

Runs very well, engine was fully rebuilt with new piston, rings, con rod, clutch, modern bearings, seals and gaskets less than 120 mile ago.

She really is a thing of beauty and attracts some much attention, ride well with a steering damper and will take two people comfortably.

Last owner fitted a new rear trials sprocket, we feel this is too much and it would be better with the standard sprocket on, but thats our opinion

Ready to show and stand out from the crowd, there is a lot of money just in the accessories

PX considered classic or modern bike / bikes, delivery can be arranged it needs to be transported on a trailer send us your post code for a quote, we can also arrange delivery in Europe and shipping worldwide.

SO "THE FLYING VICAR" WHY?

In the early 1990's the owner and builder of this outfit worked as a part time marshal at the Goodwood Motor Circuit. As a consequence was asked to marshal at the Goodwood Revival Meeting, this was a new concept for Goodwood.

He decided, as a biker he would take his classic Norton to the event, not only to get through the traffic quicker, but also to put it on display near where he was working and his little Norton Navigator got quite a lot of attention. The following year he decided to do exactly the same thing again, but with a difference, This time he dressed as a vicar in leathers, just as Father Bill Shergold did (a Biker himself with a 350 Matchless) in the 1950's, when he invited bikers into his church.

This was the start of the famous 59 Club. However, he did write to him first explaining what he wanted to do and he gave him his blessing.

Some little while after the event he wrote an article of the Norton Owner's Club Magazine, he also sent photographs of himself standing next to my bike dressed as Father Bill Shegold.
When the article was printed the editor gave me the nickname, "The Flying Vicar" ( He thought he must have a good sense of humour), and from that day to this it seems he has been stuck with this nickname.

Consequently, all the articles he has written since for various motorcycle magazines, have been signed,Richard Bennett, The Flying Vicar
