Cool Bike ! I'm partial to Beeza thumpers myself, and love dem Goldstars My friend owns a Shooting Star, and as much as i love the thumpers, kick starting those pups is a bitch !

This one's always been an easy starter, despite the high compression. Two kicks with the key off, turn the key on, and one kick will do it. Rarely kicks back.

Hopefully it's still that easy when I get it back together.

BSAman, of course the twins are easier to start, but just try kick starting a 441cc BSA Thumper !
