Default Bsh

Hope this dont offend anyone, I just couldnt believe it when I walked into the newsagents and saw the 25th anniversary BSH mag. Jesus christ, 25 years.
I cant believe its gone so quick, I can still remember the excitement of the first edition. Wow! a real British chop mag! Unreal and lets be fair, well done for lasting the pace and thanks for the memories.
Here`s to 100% biker 25 year anniversary....But not to quick ok?

Ohh god now i feel old. Its hard to avoid Harleys when all the top builders keep using the bastards, but there has of late been an improvement, I havent bought the mag for years but was lucky enough to win a subscription at last years Siobhanathon, it did impress me how they have managed to bring the mag back around. Not as good as our 100% mag and its illustrius team of freelancers bringing the ordinary peoples point of view But both mags are far to concerned with posting Pics of Wink !

I love my BSH, first half hour is spent looking at all the pretty pics, then scannng the rally pics, to, ooh know him, oooh know her, oooh, wish i knew him, lol, (triumph rockabilly guy, Blue knows who i mean, )
Then hours of great reading.
I dont know the ratio of 'Harleys' to 'other' bikes, all have a valid reason to be in there, and all featured bikes have been a pleasurable read.


I dont remember the 1st issue as i was pretending to be a mod, coz the guy i eventually married (and divorced) was one, and cos it pissed off all 4 men in my family, all rockers. I used to secretly listen to the rock cassettes my brothers would leave around, but to sneak a look at a mag, would have showed them that there rebelious 'embarrassing' sister was truly a proper biker. lol. Obviously they know now, and think it hilarious, i used to flounce around in my parka. oh gawd,

Anyway, the reason for post is.........

Congrats on 25 years and heres to the next.

I stopped buying BSH quite a while ago. I got sick of the way that it was trying to follow Easyriders. Everything had to be Harley and every feature was a bike costing more to build than most of us could ever afford, or maybe even want to spend on our bikes.

I used to buy and read BSH religiously and knew Alstair Mcfarland personnaly. He managed to get sponsorship agreed for Team Yamaha Drag Racing when I set up the team.

I refuse to advertise in BSH and don't bother to read or buy it now. Big business is involved in it. The original idea and ethos has been lost to the number crunchers. There some good people still working for them, but the mag no longer has any interest for me.

I stick to 100% and BritChopper because they feature the sort of bikes I build and the readers are the people I want to reach with my shop adverts. I won't even attempt to build a cheque book chop. I much prefer to deal with the guys and girls that are working thier fingers to the bone to build stuff themselves and rely on ingenuity, innovation, blood sweat and tears to get thier bikes done.

BSH lost its charm years ago. Too much chrome crap for people with big bank accounts.

Must be the born agains and the wannabes buying it.

I quite like BSH and buy the odd issue from time to time.

I could be on own on this, but I see BSH pretty much as bike porn,
and whenever I've gotten porn, I don't get it to see what I've ridden
but to see what I would like to be riding, given the oppertunity.

I bought the first one, and every one since, had home built bikes featured in two of 'em. One a Suzuki.....
When the custom bike scene becomes primarily V-Maxes or XJRs, i guess it'll be swamped with them, and all the HD riders will whine and stop buying it...

this is a point I've made many times. There tends to be phases as to what engine becomes the donor plants. Apart from "off the shelve" motors,people tend to build with what is suitably available and if this tends to be a load os suzi,kwaka parts cos the motors are fine but the rest of the bike is reaching the end of days then people will use them.Then others get hold of a similiar/same cheap motor to see what they can do/improve upon what they've seen.
It has so many v-twin motors as that has become the present donor of choice(at the mo)

I always buy it, always have always will, same with AWOL, when it was around, and also 100%...guess im a sucker eh..

I used to buy Streetfighters as well, but it got boring....still pick it up if theres a buell in it....

I like to see whats happening, and the money bikes, especially the ones that are blatantly unrideable that folks spout crap about.....its sad..but it does make me laugh...

Later

I don't buy it that often, but I've bought more BSH than 100%

I mainly only buy once in a while purely cos otherwise I spent about 20 quid a month on mags!!!

Both 100% and BSH have good and bad points, 100% tends to have a more varied bike selection (Sunbeam in Mag 102 was a good one but I do like how Blue articulates her words in the write-ups.. I do try and read both every month, and no I'm not rich but I don't smoke or drink much so I can just about afford them.

I too remember buying early BSH, think I'm getting old as well

You can tell when people aint bought if for a while cause they go on about hd's n bling etc
Havent got latest issue to hand but if memory serve me right couple of jap feature bikes, a norton.
Think the mag has some of the best rally write ups with good n varied opinion, like it a lot and get it every month.
Also like to see bikes that give you ideas, cant be arsed looking at piles o shyte with gas masks n stuck on plastic skulls, aint knocking them but dont want to read about them.

I used to have a hard time buying 100% but now my local petrol station stocks it and as I have to fill up more often (fecking fuel costs) I can get a copy quite easily.

I used to buy bsh as well as 100% a year ago for about 12 issues but found it a bit too same old; v twin engines and/or a speck sheet that read like a catalouge. I get 100% cos there's always at leat one bike that has 'by owner' in its specks, lets me know whats possible with limited resources and there's the trike torqe and shed head stuff that can throw different ideas up as to how to do job. Can often mean I throw what I've started in the bin but at least I end up with some clue what works

Yeah, of course BSH never has that in its spec sheet, does it? You find me one - just one fucking issue - which doesn't have at least one bike in which 'by owner' features in the spec sheet, and I'll bet you can't, but hey, that's nowhere near as fun as whining is it?
