A beautifully restored 1968 441 Victor, which can be yours for as little as FIVE DOLLARS! Yep, tickets are just five bucks each, or better yet - three for ten dollars.

You can obtain tickets by mail by sending payment and your name, address, and telephone number, along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope, to: Barb Kubena, Box 315, Cokeburg, Pennsylvania 15324.

Drawing for the bike takes place at the OVBSAOC's Fall Rally. You need not be present to win.

Beautiful example. Does it have a current, easily transferable DMV title?

It certainly does, Dick. However, it can only be transferred into MY name. ;)

Thank you, Dick! Soon as I get me arse in gear I'll be posting pictures of past raffle bikes - to show everyone just what fine machinery the OVBSAOC has raffled off year after year.

It is worth noting that the basic premise of this effort is simply that it be self-perpetuating. That is, if the OVBSAOC can make enough money from each year's raffle receipts to buy (and restore, some years) the next bike, then haul it around and promote it through the next event-season, they consider the results a success.

It aint a big money-makin' deal. Instead, the whole idea is to provide one lucky winner, year after year, with a super-fine vintage BSA. And that's five bucks well spent.

You all might be interested to know that the 1st bike raffled off back in 1908 of something (maybe 1984????) was a 1950 something B33 (1957 maybe). That bike had been purchased new from a dealer in Toronto, Ohio named Al Hinch, and the club bought it from the family of the original owner, Mary McGarry. The winner of that first raffle bike was a lady from Steubenville, Ohio, who's name escapes me at the moment. The B33 was subsequently traded for a '68 Victor. The Victor is still around, but the whereabouts of the B33 are unknown. Somewhere in Northern Ohio, the last I heard.
