Something just doesn't look right with the BSA, anyone?

I would not touch it either.

One of the major problems with projects that unless they are something that is really special.

They cost more than buying a working bike unless u have a shed full of suitable bits.

No matter how much it costs to restore you will only have a bike worth somewhere around £3000 to £4500. :)

Scrap Steel fetches about 9p a kilo I think :rolleyes:

£300 for the engine as it is, £200-500 for the frame, £100 -200 for the Front brake.

Another £500 - 800 for the rest.

I was amazed how much bits went for when I broke my Greeves and B31. :xThumb:

Fork stanchions are longer than stock, hence the chopper look (side stand has also been extended to make it work)

If buying for restoration, always go for the most complete bike you can find - it will still be a money pit, but slightly less so!
