When compared to many other machines that have achieved classic status, the BSA Gold Star seems rather innocuous at first glance. It does not look as if it would intimidate its rider, or even generate all that much speed; nor does it bristle with unique technological or design features that set it apart from a myriad of other single-cylinder British motorcycles.

"Rhythm is a form cut into time," wrote the iconoclast and poet Ezra Pound. Is there a phrase that better describes the experience of motorcycling? And are there finer ways to experience motorcycling than astride a British classic bike? This question would provoke a passionate debate no less voluminous than the exhaust note of these beloved machines. This kind of intensity and passion fuels the mission of Herb Harris: to consecrate a beloved companion-his 1956 BSA DB 34 Gold Star.
