Web Randomiser

Found with Google. BSA Goldstat tracker. (could be a repost)

A week of BSA

Spent every day working on the pile of bits, now it resembles a bike.
This is before:-

Got the inlet port matched to the 30mm carb by Scholar Engines.
Then go nuts, grind seats, lap head, assemble etc.

BSA fork dissassemble

Taking apart the BSA forks. These were so gunked and corroded I had to use a stilson to start the undo'ing procedure on the oil seal holders. I tried a method found online with gaffa tape and hose clips, but htat just slid around.
Note the use of a bottom yoke in a workmate to hold the stanction whilst undoing end nut. removing the spring clip is not fun. as is re installing it.
