awminto2<at>gmail.com BSA Valuations
I have just imported two BSA's into Australia (Perth)from the US and
my shipper wants Australian valuations so that I can pay customs duties...(not
just the US valuation). RedBook does not list them! Any ideas where
I can get a reasonable valuation?

they are certain things you can do to get alot more out off a m20,to
get a possible 80 to90 mph 1:CHANGE THE FRONT SPROCKET TO A GOLDIE SPROCKET
23T 2:A10 DOUBLE VALVE SPINGS (YOU WILL HAVE TO MAKE THE CUPS YOUSELF)
this will cure the valve bounce 3:take up the carb from a 26ml to a 30ml
carb what you need to do is make a manifold tract grading down from a 26ml
to a 30ml I found the best results where to have a 4 inch tract 1inch of
manifold to 1ml off carb 4: you can,t use a compasit head gasket it will
just blow through you need to make a solid copper gasket this is best witha
ally head.By just doing these few things you will have a M20 what you will
have hours of fun with ,or before I forget a small mega go,s down well
with it but alas not with the police.....trav....

Why are 71 lightnings so hard to find? Does anyone that has one wants
to keep it,or are they junk? I own one with 13k miles,no complaints! please
help me out with any info. Thanks.
By 1971, sales of British machines were in decline due
to the Japanese onslaught. In that year (or perhaps the following year),
I was overtaken by two Honda Fours whilst riding in rural Tasmania on my
BSA Lightning. I had absolutely no hope of catching them, I was totally
outclassed. Furthermore, if you were going to buy a British twin, you'd
probably opt for the more reliable and better looking Triumph. Ed.

BSA Lightning or Thunderbolt
I bought my first bike (it was a BSA) when I was 18 in 1962. I'm 63
and I've been riding for over 45 years. I own an 06 Harly V-Rod with a
Porsche-designed engine that has 120hp and does an 11 sec quarter-mile.
It's just not the "real me". I always loved my BSA. I want about a 1966
to 1970 Lightning (or possibly a Thunderbolt) in excellent condition. I'm
not one of those "investors" who run the prices up for the rest of us,
I'm just an old beezer lover who wants one to ride every day. Anyone interested
in my V-Rod? It's advertised in CycleTrader.com and HDTrader.com (check
it out) and priced very competitively at $12,995. I'd love to accept a
1966 to 1970 BSA Lightning or Thunderbolt in excellent condition as a trade-in
plus the difference. Call (954) 306-2047 and leave a message. Best way
to reach me is via e-mail

john.grantbtinternet.com FRAME IDENTIFICATION
BSA Trails bike
I have the frame for a BSA trails bike - believed to be 1958 duplex
frame and solid rear end. I was told it was one of only 40 made. Can anyone
help me identify it.
PS no frame number evident
At the moment it is frame and forks only ( I think the forks are from
a roadgoing B31). I was told it was for a BSA "trails" bike ( but that
might also mean a "scrambler").
It is a duplex frame so takes later "swinging arm" engines.It has a
solid rear end - so it does not have either the plunger or swinging arm
suspension associated with the @1958 years.
I cannot find any frame number - certainly not on the headstock.
A rebuild will be a long term project -reliant on finding odd bits
a autojumbles. I just wanted to know a more positive identification for
