Hi, I have to do the same for my C15.

Iíve never used a drift before (which may lead to me breaking either myself or the bike).

Can anyone recommend one to buy? Size, shape etc

There seems to be a few options out there and I just want to make sure I use the right one for the job.

So the only way to remove the spindle whilst the wheel is still mounted?
I removed the rear brake mechanism before removing the wheel

Hi, i have removed the rear wheel from my 1960 c15 so i can refurb it. Problem is i don't know how to now dissassemble it.

The spindle is still in, so the whole hub and brake assemble just spin around whenever i try and remove any of the nuts on them.

What's the best thing for me to do? Remove the spindle? If so how?!

Thanks for any advice in advance...

Thank you both for your help. I have the Rupert Ratio books and service sheets so I'll get my hands on a parts sheet too.

Singles / BSA C15 - rebuild and registration
« on: 24 July, 2017, 21:50:07 »
Hi, I am completely new to rebuilding classic bikes, or anything come to think of it.

My friend and I bought a BSA C15 off eBay for £600 but it needs a lot of work doing to it and parts before it is road-worthy. It is also not registered, however it does have a frame and engine number to go on.

I will no doubt have many questions over the next however long it takes me to finish it, but for starters I need some help with the following:

1. When I rebuild it, I want to use as many original parts as possible, but tweak the paintwork of the frame and tank so they are matt black not gloss black. Will the finish of the bike effect whether or not I can get it registered? ie. does the finish of the bike need to be as close to the original as possible

2.  How do I go about getting it registered once it's rebuilt?!

3. I have looked all over youtube and done a bit of searching but no-one seems to have a good visual guide on how to fix up the bike. I have the original manual but the images/diagrams aren't great for a newbie. Does anyone know where I can find one?

Thanks for any responses in advance
