Singles / B40 Swinging arm and a few questions.
« on: 18 October, 2017, 09:19:34 »
Hi
New to this forum.
Recently bought a B40 ( 1961) which needed tidying. Came with a 12 month MOT so was usable.
However, I started dismantling with a view to repainting etc and everytime I remove something, a new problem arises.
At present the bike is just a frame with the engine in. I would appreciate a bit of advice on:

1. The swinging arm is solid - I cannot move it in the frame! I assume the pivot axle is seized. Any advice?
2. The battery box has virtually rotted away so will need rebuilding. Has anyone got a photo of what it should look like so I can get an idea of what to make?
3. How heavy is the engine  ? is it easy to lift out without any help?
4. Where is the best place for parts ?
