Congrats! I'm hoping to have my BSA back on the road this year, and if not I have the trusty T120. I'm over in Calvert county. If you'd like to meet up for ride to lunch at some point, send me a PM and let me know!

Fabbed up an oil filter mount out of 1" aluminum angle. It mounts to the lower engine mount bolt and just misses the center stand when it is up. Can barely see it. With a black filter it would all but disappear.

I would like to see a photo showing the filter on the bike.
Because of the wear problems with the timing side crank and oil-feed bush, every A10 and A65 should have a filter.

As to color; you could spray-can it BLACK to help hide it.

Here you go Swede. Yes I had already painted it black. Painting filter black would make it all disappear

The filter hides pretty well down there.

Nice job!

Really? You mean NOS? They don't look old enough to be the originals.

No not NOS original. Yes the bike was in very good condition when I got it. They aren't perfect but very good. The entire bike is original. I really lucked out on this one.
