Scully's BSA


As should seem obvious after reading previous ChopCult features on Gasbox Customs in North Olmsted, Ohio, Jesse Bassett's talents for motorcycle crafting and metal fabricating go far beyond the man's youthful age. In few other Gasbox creations does this opinion ring more true than in Brett Scully's BSA.

We didn't get to meet Brett personally during our visit to Gasbox, but it's clear after straddling his Bassett-built Beeser that this Buckeye biker is one lucky cat. Actually, luck has nothing to do with it. To some discerning eyes, BSA motor styling represents the quintessence of 20th century art deco perfection. Coupled with Jesse Bassett's clever yet restrained customizing cues and fluid handcrafting, Brett's Beeser isn't merely a righteous ride; it might be the most beautiful BSA ever.

Anyone care to second that hyperbolic motion?
