The Star and Garter / Short intro.
« Last post by NickM on 23 October, 2017, 18:41:00 »
Just a short note to introduce myself to the forum and owners club. I've just bought a part restored 1967 Spitfire in boxes (apart from the rolling chassis) on eBay. Probably paid too much in hindsight but it was exactly what I was looking for.......ho hum. I have only ever restored Japanese bikes so this is all new to me but I will try do the proper research and not to ask too many silly questions ::)

Ok, thanks JulianS.  The cams would of course be different, but the B25 plate seems to fit snugly in the T20 recess.  The T20 cam does open the points ok, so I guess the B25 plate will do.  The condenser will be fitted near the coil under the T20 seat, as this B25 plate has no provision for it.

What internal size are the rubber oil and breather pipes. I assume they are all the same size. I intend to buy direct from a pipe supplier instead of buying by part numbers, thanks.

Thank you for your reply JulianS

I guess it could have been supplied incorrectly to the BSAOC, I haven't seen the frame number for myself. I will ask to have a look myself and see if I can form an opinion.

The frame has been powder coated so might be difficult to read but I will ask the owner if he sent it to BSAOC prior to it being powder coated.

I'm afraid I am new to BSA's and at this juncture don't know what constitutes a correct BSA frame number format.

Thanks again JulianS.

If the frame number is not in the despatch books then there could be a problem registering it as an old bike. You could end up with a Q and you might need a type approval.

See DVLA website.

However - sometimes owners do not give clubs quite the correct number - misread it (2 for Z, S for 5, Z for 7 and a number of other possibles) or part obscured by paint (especially powder coating). It is worth viewing it and forming an opinion on the number and compare it with the letter and getting an account from current owner. If the number is really odd then I suggest beware.

Do you know what it is? Does it look like it is a proper BSA number?
