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,
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 :
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
