Nice to see someone else doing an M20. I'm in the process of building one up from boxes (I didn't take it apart). Mine is a 1940, rigid/ girder model. There's a fellow in Australia that can date the old M20s and give a minor amount of details of when and where the bike was sold or supplied. Mine was a military model and was supplied to the War Department in London. He also gave me the tank numbers it was supplied with. Of course, yours is a civilian model but I hope it makes you a nice rider!

I wonder why many people seem to be using Photobucket. (early pages anyway). There are much better options that aren't a ripoff!

Years ago it was the 'go to' image Hosting service before they went to the 'dark side'. Now they overlay their brand on everyones images unless you pay them. They ruined a ton of great pictures, not just on this forum but others as well.

Greetings all!

I'm new to this forum and have a BSA project underway.

After 42 years in storage, we're bringing my dad's 1968 B25 Starfire back to life. The little bike started its life in Ohio and was moved to Texas 14 years ago (still wearing 1978 Ohio plates).

[Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

I've never heard the bike run until a couple of weeks ago, when it started easily and ran strong (after a bit of fiddling with points, etc.). It had never been apart, but now...the frame is stripped and off to powder coating, other parts to plating, a host of items are on order, speedometer sent off for restoration, NOS wheels sourced, etc. We're progressing quickly!

Thanks for having me!

I've been using Postimage.org. Free, easy to use. Ask me for usage details if needed.

Here’s a couple of pics of my 1966 Lightning. The first one was taken in 1993 a year or so after it’s first rebuild. The second one was taken yesterday and shows the current state of the second and more comprehensive rebuild. It will be getting a 750 kit fitted as part of this rebuild.

Nice!!!

Interesting yours has the bolt on sprocket type early drum, I always thought Therese were reserved for the hornets and such like and Lightning’s had the 42t type?


Now let’s all have a beer beerchug

68’ A65 Lightning “clubman”
71’ A65 823 Thunderbolt (undergoing restoration)
67’ D10 sportsman (undergoing restoration)
68’ D14 trials (undergoing transformation)

Hi Allan,

I'm not sure. The 1966 parts book seems to agree with what I have on my bike regarding the rear drum and sprocket.

Here's what I have in my pdf files
