Additional photos of this BSA Victor 441 Special are available here for your perusal.
In the early 60’s, BSA’s race team was developing a large single in the hopes of winning the 500cc world motocross championship. A 441cc engine ended up being the ticket, which helped BSA capture the 500cc championship in ’64 and ’65. The following year, the company released the BSA Victor 441 Special to the public.
The first years of the Victor, it was simply a MX bike with lights. By 1969, the Victor had turned into more of a street bike, with lower compression (from the high original figure of 11:1), a battery with coil ignition, a heat shield for the exhaust, and other minor changes to make it easier to live with.

The seller of this example (VIN: HD13678B44VS) acquired it in February of 2016 from Century Motorcycles in San Pedro, California.
At some point in the past, the inside of the tank was coated. In addition, this BSA got a $1,816 service when the seller first acquired it in to make it a runner – work included a carb rebuild, fuel tank flush, full tune up, new rear shocks, new wheel bearings, new clutch plates, rebuilt front forks, new brake switch, new spark plug and wire, and a fluid flush.
It has been sitting since and will need the carb cleaned before it hits the road again – our White Glove service would be glad to address that for the next owner if desired.
Haul Bikes will ship anything sold through Iconic for a starting rate of $750 in the Continental US (prices may increase in rural markets), and Iconic will handle the paperwork on your behalf. You do not need to crate your bike or drain the gas/disconnect the battery if you go with Haul Bikes. We are glad to work with the shipper of your choice as well, but you will have to arrange it.
- spares/extras will have to be shipped separately via FedEx or similar.
- the fee includes $15,000 of insurance with a $500 deductible. Additional insurance can be purchased at a cost of $50 per additional $5,000 of value.
