The circular piece of steel in the down tube and the bend in the seat rails near the top bolt look non-standard as well. Could this be a B40 frame or part of one?

Singles / BSA C15 Frame ID
« on: 24 July, 2017, 11:39:14 »

Somehow through some late night eBay action I have managed to buy myself a BSA C15, or more correctly a pile of parts that were due to be made into a pre 65 Trials bike. I usually mess around with early Japanese bikes and some Harley's and have never built a British bike and this looked like an enjoyable project.

The frame is this pile of parts was supposed to be a BSA C15T but I'm not 100% sure if this is correct. The start of the frame number looks a bit dubious as it is stamped what looks like C15T which I don't think exists (although the model number does obviously), but the number falls in the correct range for a 1965 C15 Trials frame.

Some pictures of the frame are below and if anyone could tell me if this is a trials frame it would be much appreciated. Also was it common to re-stamp frames and frame numbers? I would like to get this bike registered for the road and I presume this frame number may cause an issue. I can show a picture of the frame number but wasn't sure if this was good idea on the internet? Please let me know if this is ok and I can post a picture.

Thanks for any help  :)
