The BB (that was it's correct name), standing for Buckler Bultaco.
As you may know, it was originally built with a Bultaco engine.
In order to "distance" it from it's Karting origins ( the hill climb brigade were getting really p'd off with Karts beating very expensive racing cars ), Rivers started calling the car the Buckler Ballamy.
Leslie Ballamy helped design the chassis, and the car was re-engined with a 650cc Triumph engine. Could it have been a Triumph Starmaker?
