Thank you for the following Emails:

I am ex BSA/Triumph the buff logbook first registration info is signed by the late Les Steventon who was one of the sales office clerks in the 1960s/70s.
Hi Frank – best of luck in selling the bike I would guess that the first owner on the log book (Gordon Sims) may have been a BSA employee as he appears to have bought the bike direct from the factory. As a BSA/Triumph sales/service rep in the 1960s this is not a reg that I rode myself or saw around the factory. I used to have a company car and company motorcycle in those days to visit my dealer customers and that included 2 or 3 Rocket 3s. After I left BSA/Triumph I had my own motorcycle shop in Birmingham for 10 years – these days I just appear on various FB pages devoted to the Triples.
Dear Frank
I spotted your advert today on eBay and I have a sneaky feeling that the lovely R3 used to belong to my best friend. His name is Mr Timothy Deutsch, and his old address at the time of ownership of the bike was, “Crowley’s Oak, Ullenhall, Nr Henley – in – Arden, Solihull, Warks.

There is an amazing history of the bike which I could give to you because I too had a Rocket 3 at the same time and we were the two fastest Bsa’s on the planet between 1975 and 1977.

Please have a look at the log book for me as I would like to surprise my friend with the news, and who knows, he might buy it back off you !!!

Look forward to your reply ???
