I bought that Sprinter Van, rode the bike 4 hours to Charlotte to buy it!!
still have this bike, converted to "naked" Style with vintage round headlight, blacked out gauges, and homemade ears.
well looks like you are missing a few things, maybe you have already taken them off. If I may suggest.
Read some restorations on this board, I recommend Swan who has done a number of 400cc hondas but much is the same
Make a friend or friends IRL (in real Life) who might let you watch them work...
Selling my current rider, a sport touring bike that lots of folks like to Street Fighterize. It is a little too modern and frankly more power than I ever use, not my thing. I got a good deal on it and commuted daily for months and months. Just looking to do something different.
I would be willing to hear offers from DTT members. Especially for a planned restoration. I dont want this bad boy to get chopped into a half ass project when it is such a good start to a classic restoration.
email direct is best
Re: 1962 BSA DBD34 Gold Star restoration (SHE'S ALIVE!!!!.)
That comment is right, you SHOULD make this into a high dollar large format book. you know how I know, because I would buy it.
Great work, I have been reading since Day one it is the only thing I look at on the Interweb some...
the key doesn't hold it in place though, it should be tight enough to hold it in place with the taper. The key just helps line it up on the shaft when you first put it on.
that looks salvageable to me so good luck!!!
you should probably pull the flywheel and inspect the crank under there, see what the taper (i assume it is a taper fit) looks like. if the woodruff key is then try re-tourquing the flywheel down to the shaft. if it is warped or uneven you may have to lap it the same way you do a valve. paste...
Motorcycle superstore has them the cheapest and tubes as well. but sometimes they are on sale other places bike bandit ect....
Also good to know is that gazelles tend to be about a 1/4" bigger than the size says, meaning a 2.25 will look like any other 2.5" tire and so on. Great tires though...
