Thanks for the welcome Jon and Konon.

I've down-sized considerably from past days of working out of a large industrial space. Gone back to basics and loving it. Organization has been key to making it work out of my suburban home garage.

Fired up with a 376 donor carb, cleaning the mag points and some oil...and getting the engine to turn over after diagnosing a stuck piston.

It would run better with a 389. Also if those are the original rear fender braces save them. They were a specific length for the BB model. And the oil tank with the flip up cap is one year only for that model.
I have a spare fuel tank for that year too if you're interested.

Hi, new to the forum and thought I’d post a pic of my 1960 BSA Super Rocket. I originally bought this bike in 1972 as boxes of parts. Over the years it’s been through several iterations including chopper, cafe racer, and currently as a “bobber”. Everything in the drive train has been completely rebuilt, the oil tank is made from a shortened fire extinguisher and my buddy hand made both the springer and hardtail…[img]http://[/img]

Sometimes things just happen.

Got a call about a bunch of BSA parts

Most of a 1968 B44 Victor Scrambler was amongst the pile. I have an engine and some other bits. I may just have enough to make this a roller
