Hello every one;
I'm new to the forum and I just bought a 1970 BSA Lightning. Question-do the gas tank petcocks screw out?

Hey Doug

I'm new here too, just bought a 69 Thunderbolt.. I have and will continue to have a ton of questions. Careful what you ask, some of the folks here have vase technical and historical knowledge, they can take a simple question into the stratosphere. You will learn a LOT!

Good luck on your project

OH! If you don't have already. Get Building Budget Brits by Mike Brown. Excellent book, he provides tips and tools for DIYer's. He covers issues one can encounter on these old bikes.
