I just bought me a project. This 1959 M21 has been stored outside for the last 5 years. The picture does not show the condition. Sadly it is very rusted. The engine turns over, but there is no spark and no petrol enters the cylinder. The first bad sign is that it came with a spare engine. Sadly the owner has passed away, so I am starting from scratch. I have never restored a classic bike, so bear with me for asking silly questions.

Firstly I want it in running order. Hopefully this forum can advise me on my journey!

I cant even figure out how to post a picture, but Ill submit this reply anyway.

I don' t think it is a good idea to try to get an engine running that' s been stored outside for several years...
Personally, I' d take it apart.

I found a 1970 B44VS that had been in a fire and abandoned outdoors for 10+ years. The fuel tank and carburetor were melted and frame severely rusted. I am going to keep working on it and try get a good motor out of it but I am not sure it's worth it. I have the head off so far....

Here is my B44, started life as B44 Roadster in 1967, was "converted" at some time in the past to a VS. I got it about a year ago and re styled it along the lines of an Enduro. All the usual done, electronic ignition (Vape), re-bore to 453cc, new clutch (5 plate), 4 stud forks, new wiring loom, new lights, new paint scheme. Wish list ….... 21" front alloy rim, "Peanut" muffler...…. Certainly not as Mr BSA made it but done as I wanted it!

Hello People!


I'm new on the forum, my father gave me a BSA bike, the bike ride for first time in 1947, but i don't know which model is exactly. Anyone knows which model is? and which engine is? The front fork isn't stock part.


Thanks.

That's a really beautiful motorcycle. I'm guessing a B31, but it will take a BSA pre-unit single smart guy to tell us for sure. What are your plans for it?

I'll believe that it's a crisis when the people who tell me it's a crisis start acting like it's a crisis ...

Hi Chapi,
It looks to me that you BSA has been much modified ?
The basis of the bike looks to be very like a 1938 or so Empire Star ?
similar to the one on this link
http://my-oldmotorcycle.blogspot.com/2017/03/motomania-motors-details-bsa-empire.html

The rear of the frame has been modified to plunger suspension which are angled forwards
BSA plungers are vertical
Have you found the engine and frame numbers?
Frame number should be on the front downtube or on the headstock
Engine number is on the drive side crankcase near the cylinder joint
In Europe during the 40's a lot of prewar bikes were modified in a similar way to yours

John

Hi chaterlea25,

I found the numbers that you say. The frame number is Z16xxx and the engine number is D1xxx. I guess that numbers can help to find which bike is.

Hi Chapi,
BSA numbers from the thirties are on this link
https://www.britbike.com/bsapitstop/dating/1931-40.html

But the numbers you quote are from lightweight models which your bike obviously is not
Can you post some photos of the numbers? blank out the last digits
Are there any old documents with the bike?

John
