I have a new mistress in my life. A 1950 BSA B31 Saw this on gumtree late November last year and knew I had to have it. So after waiting for it to be trucked over to Adelaide and arriving 2 days after I left on a 6week overseas trip ( i swear I thought about this bike everyday we were away) I finally saw it for the first time late January. It was a big risk buying an unseen bike but was more than happy with it and had been given a very realistic discription by the seller. Long story short I did the following. Gearbox oil Clean out oil tank, new oil (3 changes) Primary drive case gasket and oil Clean the chain and oil Cleaned the carby. New seals and gaskets New battery Checked brakes New fork boots New spark plug Fresh fuel After about 5 kicks she came to life. So much relief. Got rego for it the other day and took it out for its first (legal) ride yesterday with a massive smile on my face. Can't wait to take it out again I realise this is not the typical bike on here but I'll think I'll hang around as there is such a wealth of friendly knowledge around here.
