Be still my beating heart!

Seriously Miffa, that reminds me sooo much of my Dad's A10, the amount of time I spent as a 17 yo old bouncing up and down on the kick start of that recaltriant old beast, only to have it cough once or twice then die, particularly when I was trying to 'borrow' it for the night to meet up with my mates.

I finally saved up enough to put a deposit down on a CB250, bought on the never-never, oh the joys of electric start! Aftre that it was 30+ years (and another 5 stone) before I had to start fannying around with tickling carbs and jumping up and down again, but I still miss my Bonnie! Very Happy

Mine's 26 and a high-flying financial adviser, I never realised I was so carp with money until he points out that I don't have any then goes on to explain where I went wrong all those years ago! Evil or Very Mad

problem is they are probably right Wink




got the headlight brackets back from the chromer and they look spankin

looking for a couple of alloy mudguards this weekend 6" and a 4"C section and maybe some period clip ons ,as the ajustable ace bars are going to force me to mount the tank 1" futher back than i wanted
bsa use a tappered top yolk which limits what i wanted to do with the frontend so may have to either have the spare one ive got machined, slotted with pinch bolts added or try to find a suitable british alternative been told that earlier bsa fork sliders A10 - A7 were shorter so maybe thats the solution scratch
Have you tried unity Equipe www.unityequipe.com they have loads fo bits for cafes.
