Now I'm sure that this is a nice bike and will find a good home ... but no wonder the "British Small Arms" thing never ends.

And "Sounds like a Ferrari"? A Ferrari with a broken crankshaft, maybe. If there's one thing an old British plonker DOESN'T sound like, it's a Ferrari ... help

Absolutely. -- No single will ever sound like a Ferrari.

But have you ever heard a Rocket Three race bike with 3 into 1 and a megaphone come through at full shout!

Now that will take the paint of the walls and wake up the livestock :-) !

The Triples sound really good with 3 pipes. And would meet the description.

Lannis lad, you're forgetting one tiny weany thing here bro, how can I put this..?

Well here's how I see it, the lad is S-E-L-L-I-N-G the bike, so he'll say ANYTHING to make it look great, when I sell the M33, it'll run like a Swiss watch, have a smooth as silk clutch, and sound like a Saturn 5 on 'Go for Lunch' mode wink

Don't ya know nuffink about selling stuff dude shocked

By the way, I've got a 1950 British Superior Associations M33 it's the BEST motorcycle BSA made, quite rare as it's the hard tail one which was the extra money type. 5000 quidbobs if y'all interested grin

Geez Shaun, is that the one with the single carb head and the one into one exhaust? They're worth a fortune!

I agree on the triples. Any triples, like Rockets, Laverdas, or modern Hinckleys. They all sound like racers, very nice.

For the M33, I would have said something more like "Sounds like a Robin Reliant" or "Sounds like Briggs and Stratton at full chat on the Mulsanne Straight" ....

Must be he saw the error of his ways-place of manufacture has changed to Birmingham, and now it just sounds amayzing. Nice looking bike just the same, wish I had the spare cash.

It's entirely possible he's someone on the list, and I don't want to "queer his pitch"; like I said, someone's likely to get a nice bike here. But some things just HAVE to be handled right !!!

Karl lad, cut the dude some slack will ya, don't you know he's at the 'Plant' this time of day. He's sitting there eatting doughnuts & drinking coffee, while Mr BURNS is looking at him via CCTV.

Never fear lad, once that whistle blows he'll slide down the dinosaur's neck and get home to Wilma wink

Well, give us the news when it's ready for public consumption! We're all pullin' for ya!

Fettling time last night was on the big Husqvarna mower that cuts all that grass we got. The rear drive wheels are held to the axles of the hydraulic motors by tapers and half-moon keys. My mower wasn't assembled right from the factory, and the wheel loosened from the taper, shearing the key and ruining the hub. I purchased a new hub (luckily and smartly, the $100 hub is made of softer metal than the $900 axle/motor!), but the taper has been compromised and I need to do some work to make them fit tightly again ... sounds like working on a Britbike clutch!

Got the Dyna module yesterday back from Dynatek under warranty - they verified that the signal was grounding to the case, it was a manufacturing fault. The "old" one I sent them did in fact have a blown right-cylinder trigger, I suppose they're doing a post-mortem on it or maybe it just went in the skip ... ?

Shaun, the truth's out don't you fear! I saw him swanning into his 'office' for the occasional meeting when I was over there. He looked more relaxed than some of the road kill we kept seeing... laughing

Anyhooo...

Lannis, so I'm wondering does running with non-resistor plug caps cause any problems with these particular electronic modules, just a thought...

Chrome where there never was chrome, tank looks nice but is nothing like it should be & so on.
As for the pillion seat shocked
Would I like to ride it with a passenger sitting out there?
Not likely.
That aside it could be made a rather nice machine

It is a typical bike from Indonesia, have seen lots of them.
Either you like it as it will be difficult to change to stock.
you can get them far cheaper if you look around.

Wonder why it's got 1968 onwards A50/A65 die cast tank badges too? Probably the worst looking tank badges BSA made IMHO, I've got them on my A50... cry
