The rough parts allow oil cooling and a lot of thought went into it, that is why modern bikes have oil coolers; don't polish it !

Twins / A65 OIF Filter

'Frame oil filter fitted under large frame tube'. I intend to flush out the frame tank and then remove the bottom plate to reveal the gauze filter 83-3642. If it is not damaged can I just wash it and replace with new gaskets or should it be replaced, thanks.

Have a fire  extinguisher handy. Good luck they are a solid little engine. Make sure you have some oil in there.

Many large British Bikes sat around in crates due to the explosion of the Jap superbikes, my bike was built in May 1971 and registered a year later would not worry too much.

Welcome back, you have the same model as my basket case which I bought in many bits, one owner from new. the wheels now look new, frame ditto. forks finished and fitted and my new seat arrived today. Will make a start on the engine next week. Costing 's so far, but it is fun. Keep us updated.

Hi Nigel and welcome. I will probably open a can of worms here. You can send your engine off and get it back better than new for about 2,500. OR you can find an old fashion engineer who will strip and inspect you engine and just replace-repair only what needs doing, nothing more nothing less. About a third of the price. There are still old lads about that worked in motorcycle workshops, they need work as well. Look in Old Bike Mart. Good luck.

The DVLA know the plate, Black BSA registered April 1956, seems to be still on their books. Regards Colin

The DVLA website will tell you if it is taxed , registered or sorn.

The Star and Garter / More ebay fraud.

Some chap has just parted with 2999 to buy a lambretta off ebay from the daily fraudster. He swallowed a story and parted with the cash via a transfer. Some mothers do have them. BSA frauds on there every day of the week, be careful lads.

Try Kidderminster Motorcycles, old school service and good advice. They advertise in OBM.

Took the Kidderminster route, nice people to deal with. Thanks. Post complete.  ;D

From another forum:

From a Norfolk Section member.
Eleven machines were taken from a property in Norfolk.
1930 BSA Sloper.
1968 Bantam Sports.
1927 AJS
1926 Coventry Eagle
1952 Bantam.
1946 Ariel Twin Port.
1948 BSA ZB.
1914 New Hudson.
1933 Francis Barnett Lapwing
1929 Ariel 250 LH
1952 Ariel VHA.
A 4 wheel car trailer (chained to a concrete yard) was also taken. The robbery was quite sophisticated. An electric chainsaw was used to cut a hedge back to get a vehicle on the site.
If you hear anything at all about machines answering these descriptions, please inform the police.

Appreciated Chris.

Thanks Mark, looks handy. Just started a complete rewire. Regards.

These headlights are fixed by wire mounts, either side of the wire are two large washers, the outer being chrome with two tags. Can I find new ones, no. Dragonfly don't even list the part number. This style is common to A65 and 70's Triumphs. Help please. Couldn't see any on ebay. Thanks.
