Looks better in photos than real life. It's a right rust bucket with an interesting riding position and strange shifting.


Nice work Spence 8)

Everyone sorted now? I think I've got all the necessary BSA parts now... well apart from, gears, suspension, big wheels, working brakes and sensible tyres.

Will be very different to my usual perch of a 27speed 29er.

Found some funky yellow panaracer's in the correct old school size, ie. very very narrow.

Plan b, do you want the activator? £14 and it's yours. 8)

Anyone dared to ride there's yet, I took the dog out with the BSA the other day and nearly killed myself, the steering is ridiculously twitchy and notchy.

Your dog can not just ride a bike but the BSA? Now that I'd like to see.

My sister's Twenty was great in the snow. V low c of gravity. White tyres purple frame and guards. Lovely. Better than my racer for Sunday morning paper bags x2.

As for Activator................I'll pass :wink:
