Singles / C15 S Scrambler 1959 model. Side stand query
« on: 28 January, 2018, 19:48:27 »
Does anyone have a c15s 1959 scrambler? I am missing a side stand and have tried a 10.5 inch one from a B25 but it isn't long enough. The bike has the standard 19 inch rear and 20 inch front wheels, did BSA have a longer stand for this model?

Thanks for that, yes should probably have gone down the venhill route especially as I had to shorten the one I bought anyway! It seems to be moving ok now, i just need to sort the rest of the bike.

Hi I'm rebuilding a C15S 1959 model and have a few queries, hopefully someone can help with.
The bike is missing mudguards and I need a rear one. The wheel is 19" with trials tyre and the guard is mounted on the upturned rear frame loop to give greater clearance. I'm guessing that a standard 18/19" rear guard will look to have too tight a curve when mounted away from the tyre. Did this bike have a unique guard, anyone know?
Next question, I think some trials / scramblers would have had a D shaped smiths speedo, would this have been 0-80?
I'm missing a side stand, I've tried a B25 one that I have but it looks too short, any ideas?
Just bought a new Rocker oil feed union. When placed over the studs on the rocker box it only leaves a couple of threads for the nuts to go on. Are there different thicknesses of union?
I'm desperate to get this project running this spring, would love to hear from any other owners.

I'm a bit of a lightweight but did sadly sell my B44VS a couple of years ago as I could tell that kicking it was doing my knee no good at all. Mine was fitted with electronic and would sometimes start first kick. Other times it could be a real pig. I had it for 7 years and never did fathom out a guaranteed starting procedure. Good luck if you get one.

Singles / BSA C15S Scrambler 1959 which Oil tank ?
« on: 08 September, 2017, 13:49:13 »
Help please, I have a 1959 C15S which thanks to the BSAOC has been identified as being sold via Parks at Lewisham in 1959. it isnt complete and is missing the the elusive centre panel, side cover, airbox set up as well as other parts. It has an oil tank but I'm not sure if its the correct one. The tank looks like the standard one without a top vent pipe. I know the later C15s had a different lank with a mounting plate but I cant find info on the early 59 bikes. If anyone can help me identify which parts I need it would be a massive help. The tank that came with the bike is light blue and I've found traces of the same colour on the fork top covers (plain no headlight mount version) so it could possibly be correct?
