    Swap out the front end of an old BSA A65

    Hi, I'm restoring an old BSA A65 which has had its front end replaced with a Betor front end. The problem is, this is quite long, and it was put on from the days the bike was raced. It has no mounting points for mudguards, or anything really. So, I'm thinking of putting the front end from...

    Show me your motorcycle lifts/benches

    I wouldn't be without my Harbor Freight bench: The only problem is that if you put your cup of tea/coffee on it is acts likes a heatsink and makes your cuppa cold in no time. An old rug fixes that: and deadens the noise every time you drop a tool onto it.

    No wonder they went broke

    Got to agree. Brit bikes are simple as in primitive. Who else would place the sludge trap inside the crankcase so you have to dismantle the entire engine to clean it?

    BSA 650L

    Thanks Goldy. I'm pretty sure they're on as well as I can get 'em. Maybe once the engine's running and they get hot they can relax into the exact right position. Or maybe that's wishful thinking

    BSA 650L

    So, got the exhaust on today. The two-into-one header is not well made as far as the left cylinder and the join between the two pipes is concerned. You can get any two, but not all three, connections made tightly: I used tiedowns to pull the header into shape and into alignment with the...

    ‘65 Triumph T120R Bobber - “Ticket To Ride”

    You'll be needin' a new one of those I think. I like the type with the hex head instead of the slot, it gives you a lot more purchase on the plug. https://www.classicbritishspares.com/products/triumph-sludge-trap-plug-screw-71-2800-hex-70-3905-bsa-a50-a65-650-750-uk-made?_pos=5&_sid=d8f959736&_ss=r

    BSA 650L

    So, after a week of Honeydew lists and garage tidying, I stripped the head back down to anneal the copper gasket and add the two missing O-rings: Top tip: when choosing a container for the quenching water, choose one that doesn't leak. Anyway: Annealed washer, O-rings and nicely cleaned up...

    BSA 650L

    Well, the head's coming back off soon because I forgot two small orings that fit over oilways. But that's not hard with a clean engine with nice new nuts and bolts. It's onto the wheels next.
