Finally got around to taking some pics of my project BSA. It's actually not so much a project right now, more of a dusty relic living in the back of my office shop, eventually hope to have time to mess with it and bring it back to life. It turns over, I have a workshop manual, obviously needs lots of wiring work, rubber replacement, etc. It seems to be mostly complete, I have the missing side panel and a few other misc parts. One of these days....
that's a cool old bike, how long have you had sitting around?
It used to belong to a good friend that rented some garage space in my office shop for his Spec-Miata race cars. The BSA came along with the race cars and after a few years passed, the rent stopped coming in. My buddy eventually moved out his stuff when I rented the space to someone else and I strongly suggested he leave the BSA behind to make amends. That was last summer, so it's been officially mine for less than a year.
Don't have a title to it, that will be a pain to obtain, but just a matter of paperwork and dealing the BMV, just haven't found the time or motivation to dive into it. One of those "someday" projects.
I was thinking it would be a cool cafe racer, just not sure where to start. Guess I should clean it up, drain the fluids, make sure the tank isn't rusty, lube and fill everything, hook a battery up to it and see what happens when I kick it over. I was told there's no spark, so will have to dive into the manual and see how it all works, then start repairing as necessary. Not really into putting a ton of money in it, looks like they were plentiful enough that they're not all that valuable.
