This BSA Goldstar is the real deal. Ralph White won four Nationals in his career, one of which was the 1965 Springfield Mile on this bike. That victory made Ralph and this bike famous but he also had multiple victories at Ascot at the regular Friday Night Races which were not part of the National Championship but paid big money. I was delighted to look at this machine close up at the Calistoga Mile Bike Show.
Ralph on his way to another win at Ascot. Here racing Cal Rayborn 25 and Dewayne Keeter.
To the Victor goes the spoils.
