Aw man
I hope you didn't dump it.
My frame guy here in Sacramento fixed my last A65 neck for $100

Is the rear of the frame looped/connected? I am looking for another to swap my hornet parts into.

Hi, if you don't get a taker for the whole frame I could really use the section between the LH footpeg lug and the LH upper engine mounting lug as I have a huge weld carbuncle where my sidestand lug used to be. I can repair it piecemeal but it would be better to weld a complete section in with the the welds in straight sections so I can use slugs for strength.

I guess I am 2nd in line but it will help save my 68 Spitfire and of course I will cover you costs and postage etc.

Jon, I'll check on how to cut that tab off.. Shocks OK, but kinda heavy you know.

KC,

As long as they are British - Girlings, I will have a use for them. Maybe cutting at an angle, from in front of and behind the tab, in the shape of a V might be best ?

Funny, I was sure the Long Rear Seat tubes would be gone first, to someone with an Ex - Chopper resto. Swing arm Axel holes are good...... If I can get the pivot shaft out......

KC,

Please post this on the BSA forum and maybe a few others. My 1970 frame was missing the long rear top tubes and rear footrest support tubes among a couple other tubes and thankfully, I was able to get them from donor frames. I imagine there has to be a few members who haven't seen this thread for one reason or the other. I would hate for anyone to miss out before you scrap the rest. If you would prefer that I post it, I will gladly do it ?

Hi Allan,....... Good to know they got there OK, Thanks! I'm pleased with the Bits that went out in 4 directions, It WORKED! The old frame was saved from the dumpster, and a few other frames are now able to be repaired. I got a photo from the man grafting in the Kick stand frame section, and it looks great! It's been worth the effort.
