One question I do have is about the front tank mounts. There appears to be nothing for them to connect to on my frame.


I hadn't even told him I was building a BSA.

The two blue arrows to brackets... One is for tank mount, do you have indents under the tank for rubber cushions? if so you may need a bracket that mounts to one of those frame brackets. The red is for the tank bolt under the rubber plug with BSA on it.

That tank does look nice, good shape and good colour.

Whats the condition on the paintwork like. If good, I say keep it!  ;D

Hi Brodie, good to see it coming on! Your question about tank mounts.....the only mount on an A10 tank is the centre bolt and the 2 holes in your top frame tubes aren't stock, the 2 threads on the bottom of the tank near the front are just for a steel strap that is there to strengthen it. Also a pair of rubber bungs go in the lower hole of that bit hanging down.....
Have you ever been to this site? Its easy the best for anything A10....

Thanks for the help guys.

The paint on the tank needs to be re done. It looks as if someone took a RGS tank and painted it for a golden flash. Has some pitting where the chrome would have been.

As for the mounting I have that sorted now thanks to your help. Just need to get the oil tank and tool box sorted.

Ohh yeah, I bought a tool box. Not a repop either.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

I have an odd plan, that is a M21 complete bottom end and M20 cylinder.

I plan to convert it to a OHV engine. I have only seen 3 examples of what I want to attempt. Need a Shovelhead top end to pull it off.

Currently I am thinking the M21 stroke may be too long.

Yep, bike is for me. Hence so many chops and changes to ideas.

Currently riding a SR250 that a friend is paying me for ever so slowly. Has been a bloody good bike as well. Don't think it will be out of my fleet any time soon though.

Here is the bike that inspired me to build a single OHV.

Very nice, the shovel top looks factory on there. Can you get hold of the builder and pick his brain some?
