Another tr5 project thats great Go to www.b50.org forum for all your bsa unit singles info!Congrats. your are a few steps ahead of me.
I go way back though. I started building a 1950 Panther 100 out of two back in Chile circa 1973. No parts or catalogs of any kind.
Was a beautiful bike. That slanted forward piston with oil pump and jet to the piston made it indestructible. In spite of its air assisted forks it had no suspension or brakes to speak off for its speed. No accelerating pump so no modulation just wide open or shutdown, but a great cruise. Three kicks and you were sweating.
Back to today.
I found a Tr5Mx in great condition except that it was disabled and was in storage for a number of years. It had been upgraded to the 600cc kit but was left to sit outside and the rings rusted to the cylinder and ruined both. Was wondering if anybody knows of a source for that kit.
Also have an extra B50 complete motor but think is best to keep that and fix the correct numbers bike if posible.
Thanks for any leads.View attachment 228310
