Hi there,
Looking for a cylinder head for my rigid b31.
Also have a rebuilt b33 head to sell or trade.
I live in Texas,
Dean

Dean: If you haven't, you might watch ebayUK for a while. Not the easiest solution, but not that bad, either. I've gotten a number of parts for my B33 that way.

I might have a B31 head. But, if I do it's at the back of a shelf behind a few hundred pounds of other BSA parts (there are heads back there, but they might all be B33 heads). If I do have one it will be rusty (no big deal) and certainly will need new valves and guides. However, before even considering shifting a few hundred pounds of parts, how much is such a head worth? Please don't ask me how much I want for it, tell me what it's worth.

Hi All,
A ballpark figure as to value in UK ??,

Seems there are quite a few on eBay UK

But postage would be a killer to USA

Not a killer in my experience lately and I have been doing quite a bit of buying from England.

I did some measuring and the b31 head fits in a usps "if it fits it ships" boxes. Perhaps if a thin piece of paneling was underneath the head and packed well it would be ok. Very cheap to ship within the US.

You really have to urge any seller/shipper of something like that to pack it well. Not to derail your posting here, but I speak from experience.
