MISC:   info on BSA Golden Fifty? posted by: Philip Watson on 2/27/2007 at 2:28:11 AM
Can anyone please help me with info on the original build spec of my BSA Golden Fifty?

I bought her when I was an apprentice in 1979. She was in a sorry state, having been run over by a car, with the back wheel buckled, all the chrome rusted off, the leather saddle rotted. Some strange person had previously fitted 26" wheels, and turned the brake blocks through 90 degrees to run on the tyre side walls. I paid £2 for the remains.

I stripped everything down, and rebuilt her with new bearings throughout, new 27" wheels, and a set of half-drop handlebars. I had a little old chap lace up a reversible back wheel with 66" freewheel gear one side and 94" fixed the other side.

I'd be very interested to see any info on the Golden Fifty, as I'm thinking of dusting her off from current resting place in the back of my garage, and will probably need to do a bit of work to get her up to scratch again.

Many thanks

My wife and I recently bought a new house, and in the top of our garage we found an old bicycle frame. There are no tires, seat or handle bars, but the entire frame is intact and the original paint is in very good condition. The name on the front of the bike is Zenith. Any info would be helpfull. I will sell the bike.

Zenith was the store brand for the Marshall Wells Hardware Store chain. The Zenith bikes were made by a number of companies, the most common being the Cleveland Welding Company. If this is a mens style frame I might be interested. Could you email a photo?
