people, i have too many projects and have finally reconciled myself to never getting around to this one. its a shame, because these things are cool. i was even thinking for a while about putting the motor into a LSR sidecar rig. or maybe building my own helicopter.
what it is is a1969 BSA starfire, 250cc, numbers matching. missing some easy parts but most everything is there. motor is seized. i bought it from todd at Lowbrow
customs in america. he had been going to fix and sell it but i told him i was looking for an easy thumper project for the kids and so he showed me this.
you can see from the pictures what is missing: front fender, muffler, passenger pegs, air cleaner assembly. easy stuff. also the left-side side cover, which might be harder. im not even sure it ever had one on the right-- i see them both ways. same with the front end, i see them with or without the TLS brake. these things are pretty popular and a well-sorted example typically goes for around US$3500 around where i live.
tank is good, seat is good, tinware is good. even still has the license plate bracket. but the motor is locked up and i have been soaking the piston in a mixture of acetone and ATF for about two years now. everything else is present but i do not know any more about the internals. might be something as easy as a rusted primary chain. i'd fix i but i have too many projects and too little time.
clear ohio title in my name,
US$500, which is what i paid for it. not enthusiastic about shipping-- come and take it away. if you want pictures of any part of it let me know.
