Q&A: Brian Castillo’s BSA M20

Posted by: Q&A: Brian Castillo’s BSA M20 Defgrip
April 30th, 2013


brian castillo, bmx, bsa m20, british, motorcycle

Anyone who frequents Brian Castillo’s Instagram has surely taken notice of his unique “old-timey” motorcycle. It’s hard to overlook. I’ve seen it enough times to want to grill him about it, so keep reading to learn about Brian’s OTHER bike.

Let’s talk motorcycles. Have they always been an interest of yours outside of BMX?

Not really, oddly enough. I always just stuck to bmx as my main “hobby” and was always kinda hesitant on getting on a motorcycle. Just knowing myself and knowing I’m a bit immature when it comes to anything motorized, I never really wanted to go that route but I always appreciated everything about them.

Also hearing the horror stories about motorcycles always seemed to keep me away and hearing that quote, “It’s not if you crash, it’s when you crash.” I guess sooner or later you gotta face your fears and take it slow. That’s where I’m at today at least.

So… I follow you on Instagram and I’ve always taken notice of this sweet old-timey war looking motorcycle that you’ve got. What kind of bike is it?

It’s a 1939 BSA (Birmingham Small Arms) M20 that was a British military motorcycle during WWII.

Are you into wrenching on them?

Kinda but I’m definitely not the Fonz that takes apart his motorcycle blindfolded on my living room floor. I just got a new bike and did everything I wanted to it and haven’t touched it since. The BSA being my first older bike, I don’t know if I wanna keep it all original or do the full restore.

How did you acquired this bike? Is this type of bike a “needle in a haystack” situation? Seems like a good find.

I got it through a buddy that never really got it in great running condition. I wasn’t looking for a bike or anything like that at the time either. I saw it in his backyard and was drawn to it and had to have it. He originally got it off eBay from a guy in New Zealand. I don’t know too much back story on the bike before then though.

Did it take much work to get it running?

Not really. Just the usual cleaning off the cobwebs. It was literally sitting in a backyard for years and hadn’t been kicked over in a long while. Other than cleaning out the tank, going through the carburetor, new cables and a lot of cleaning it wasn’t a lot of work to get it back to working condition. Once I got it running, it’s been a workhorse. The thing turns over no more than two kicks and hasn’t died on me yet during my rides. It amazes me every time the thing starts up that easily.

Do you have certain places you like to cruise the bike?

I only cruise it an hour out from where I live but I do have some good twisties that I take her out on. Like most older British bikes, the thing leaks oil like crazy and I don’t want to push her too hard. It also has a top speed of 40-45mph on a good day or downhill, haha. That said, it does feel like I’m doing 100mph though, the fucker shakes, rattles and pops!

Given that the bike looks like it should be in a museum, does it get much attention when you’re out and about?

Yeah, a lot of guys give it the thumbs up or some head nods. I imagine it would get a lot more attention if I drove it more on busier streets but I just go local. I only take it to the ideal twisty road near me and just putt around, I don’t get too much attention.
Since it only does 40mph, people go nuts when I’m in front of them on the 2 lane road. That’s probably the most attention that I get, haha.

Are there any negatives to owning a bike like this?

Oh yeah, parts are only found in the UK or on eBay. You really have to search high and low for speciality parts from vintage British motorcycle shops. The shops that do have what you need in the States rape you on prices. The bike is a tank and so far has been fairly reliable though.

Do you own any other bikes and do you plan to get more?

I did get a new Dual Sport Suzuki but what’s funny is that I still prefer to putt around on the BSA than take the new bike out. I totally can’t explain how or why farting around doing 40mph is much more fun than riding a new bike.

I’d actually love to get another BSA M20 and do the full restoration on it. I’m hesitant to ruin the nostalgia WWII feel that is still with the bike I have now.

Thanks Brian! Anything you’d like to add before we wrap this up?

Thanks for the interview! If any of you guys know of anyone selling a BSA M20, hit me up. You can also follow my pics on Instagram at #bsam20 or @briancastillo

Red Bull: Dreamline 2013

THIS COURSE IS ON FIRE!!! (that’s from Red Bull, not me)

Click below for press release.

RED BULL DREAMLINE BRINGS THE BEST OF BMX DIRT TO ANGEL FIRE, NEW MEXICO.

April 29, 2013– (Santa Monica, CA) – The once quiet, under-the-radar event of Red Bull Dreamline, originally held on private land in Wabasha, Minn. is rising again, this time in the resort area of Angel Fire, New Mexico, with a bigger course, bold athlete list and some of the most challenging jumps seen in any recent BMX history. On August 9-10th, 2013, the slopes of the mountain will be converted into a dream downhill BMX dirt course, with 1,500 feet of perfectly groomed hits made-to-order, descending down from nearly 10,000 feet of elevation.

The Red Bull Dreamline project was conceived by BMX pro Anthony Napolitan as way to showcase the best of what dirt riding can be. Given six weeks and complete freedom to develop and groom the course, builder Adam Aloise helped take contest riding to a new level. While some elements will be under wraps, they are promising a course that includes 12 hits with one of the largest shark fin features ever seen, and a jump that will send riders at least 35 feet in the air. Top names in the sport have already RSVP’d including Luke Parslow, Brian Foster, Dennis Enarson and Mike “Hucker” Clark.

The format of the contest has been developed to benefit the riders. On August 9th, 32 riders will compete in two heats of 16. The 16 athletes in the non-riding heat will judge their peers. The top four from each heat will be moving on to Saturday’s final and will be judged by a randomly drawn group of non-qualifying riders from Friday. There will be a two hour jam session for each heat.

While there is prize money up for grabs, the contest shines a light on what BMXers enjoy most about riding – the freedom of pushing the limits with their friends, on a course that has no rules or constraints. As Anthony Napolitan describes it, “Red Bull Dreamline is an event that BMX riders can show up to, ride, have a great time, progress, and feel completely comfortable without the pressures of a normal contest setting. This event was designed for the riders, by the riders and that’s why it going to be such a great success.”

The event will get a national spotlight as part of the Red Bull Signature Series, which will air on NBC on October 19th, 2013 at 5pm EST, brought to you in partnership with Casio G’zOne Commando, Dodge Dart, and GoPro . The show airs as part of the Red Bull Signature Series, the most progressive action sports property in the world, featuring some of Red Bull’s top events including the Vans US Open of Surfing, Joyride and Rampage.
