After selling my 70 Thunderbolt I have lots of parts left :
- big home market Lightning tank and double carb side covers,
- most of another engine with nearly complete small port cylinder head and 32 mm carbs, gearbox and primary with alternator,
- speedometer
I was looking for a roller for some time, but no luck, however 2 weeks ago at Paris ON rally I found a bought this beauty :

[Linked Image]

It looks quite rough but has a lot of parts, so I can start thinking about building another BSA ( slowly ).
I still don't have a front end with wheel, which I'd like to be 69/70 model I know and like.
Additionally I could have new sliders for such a front end ( have to check my garage ).
Stanchions for it have to be new so I'll simply buy it, but if anybody has small parts like valves, springs, their covers, front and rear fenders, rear lamp, I gladly accept them in a new build.
The bike will be real bitsa with engine not matching frame numbers and engine numbers not matching engine ( numbers are from A50, but engine will be 650, because of cylinder I have ) and I hope to build motorcycle as good for every day riding as my last BSA.

As you can see I'll have some thinking about side stand bracket, more could be told when frame will be free from all the parts, but if anybody has any ideas what to do with it, l welcome them all smile.

Should be a fun project, although I don’t understand why you sold a 70’ runner only to build another ... similar?

Probably to give myself something to work on during long Canadian winter.
Didn't want an aggravation with selling and sending out my parts separately, however that would be much more lucrative solution.
This way some extra BSA will emerge from the ashes smile.

Hi Adam, for the side stand replacement lugs are available, grind off the damaged remains, mount wheels , simulate engine weight, dry fit stand and lug, note angle, tack new lug in place, heat lug frame wraps, bend over and finish weld.

These are listed as OIF repair pieces, should also work on your dry frame ( I reckon)

Thanks Gavin, however I don't have a damaged lug on the frame, what I have is completely new designed addition to the frame which can be used as a lug. I will show it in detail when my frame will be dismantled.
