My parents owned/operated a motorcycle business in Paris, Texas from 1964 until 1982.
They sold BSA from 1964 until 1969.
Does anyone know if their is a website or someone I can contact to research old BSA Dealership Information, such as dealership number, copies of franchise agreements, etc.

I'm thinking that the local Chamber of Commerce might have some info such as business license and the such as far as local paperwork.

As far as BSA franchise info, agreements and contracts you might try the BSA Owners Club itself as they have, if I'm not mistaken, shipping records/invoices of what bikes went where. If they don't have the info, they might be able to point you in the right direction.

Hope it helps......Tim in San Antonio, just down the road a piece...

Not sure if your BSA's sent to Texas would have come out of California or New Jersey. The original distributor for BSA was Alf Child who was based in New York. Sometime in the 50's, BSA distribution on the east coast came out of Nutley, New Jersey. I was told that records from that operation were thrown out when BSA folded. In the west, one BSA distributor was Hap Alzina in California. I think there may have been a couple of others over the years, but can't recall at this time.That would be a good research project for a long winter. I'm sure the information could be put together. As for records from the California operation(s), who knows? I'll ask around.

Thanks for posting this good question.
