All joking about missing parts aside, nice find Mike. Wish my M33 had been that decent of condition when I found it.

My M33 is a 52 also. Headlight ears were missing, so it is getting the alien head nacelle like yours has. The frame is ready to go for paint, bottom end is about to be reassembled as it the trans.

Good luck with it.

Mine hang like yours, Rian (the bags I mean).
The only way to hang these high bags,
which would otherwise touch the rear fork or the exhausts.

So I just picked this up in a snowstorm yesterday, I'll get a better picture. It's a 1970 Thunderbolt, it was parked 8 years ago in running shape, but as you can tell it was stored outside in Minnesota. God save the Queen!

First time at posting with a pic so apologies if I've buggered it up smile

This should be, the new to me, BSA B33 that i just acquired.

[Linked Image]

She's a 1954 B33 matching eng/frame (everything else is a mish mash of different parts).
It's a runner but I plan some mild fettling over the winter to get her in better shape for a lot of road use grin

Looks like a lot of fun! Keep us up to date on rides you take on it, there are very few of those old pre-unit thumpers actually on the road ... !

Lannis,
Your disease for old british stuff has metastasized. Does it continue to spread with no signs of remission? The B33 was my bike of choice for old bikes before the preunits got so expensive. A friend of mine rode his B33 from Ft Smith, Arkansas to northern PA back in his service days. Pretty nice looking ride.

Mr Mike

Salty,

Sweet, the pre unit B range are sweet looking and running bikes....it may be a mish mash of other bits, but will make a nice looking bike...

Shame it has that new fangled thing called swing arm suspension...that is probably a fad that will face laughing Long live plunger suspension laughing

I just looked at it again and realized that the front brake actuating lever is at an evil angle - you need that sorting before riding it! The SLS brake on my M21 is actually a good stopper, this one can be too. Not like you'll be pulling it down from over the ton!

Time to add my latest bike as well I think... This is a 1953 B33. I've not yet had the pleasure out on the road with it yet, but just sitting on it I notice the Alien head or Diver Helmet nacelle is just ''Huge'' gives the bike a real meaty feel to it. I'm intending to remove the double seat to place a sprung single seat. I'll be changing the carb back to a pre Monobloc and will need to find a plunger tool box. Finally I'll have to repair the broken rear mudguard hinge. Plenty to do and all part of the fun!

I still get the urge to find another something to make a runner out of and I'd want it to be a pre unit, but space will become an issue and I will have to add a "South" wing to my shop. Sometimes I dream I might run into a barn find. Lannis you've still got plenty of room for more stuff.

Nice bike LJ....something about the plunger singles....they just look good grin

Mike,

There are still pre units out there. But be prepared to become too focused on one when you get one, they are quite fascinating.

Greetings Beezers,
After a couple of years looking for a Brit bike I finally found one equipped with a price that fit my budget. Here's my 71 T-bolt as I purchased it before cleaning it up. [Linked Image][Linked Image]
Its not running but with good compression hope it will by spring. Looks like it hasn't run for at least 10 years. PO wasn't sure. Needs: Gas tank derusted, carb cleaned, battery, and who knows what all.

Rich B,
Thanks. Not FROM Ohio but IN Ohio for the last 7 years. I'm from the part of the country where the riding season is longer. I also own a 77 Honda CB750 F2 and a 74 CB200. These reside in a garage with a 73 MG Midget. Lots of fun.
