I wish them every success with this bike, but I wouldn't consider one..although if they launched a modern take on the Victor I might be seriously tempted!!

I prefer the one on the left. It looks leaner and more purposeful

I like the look of it but how much and who are the dealers etc etc. Might shoot off down to find out more.

I have made several sidecar screens all from clear acrylic which you can easily bend using a hairdryer. All were made over 20 years ago and of course clear acrylic does not go yellow with age. Sheets easily bought in various thicknesses.

curse my bad memory.
i think the primary side front engine plate may have to be dropped in just before final reposition. i vaguely remember a problem with the bottom angle of the plate. but i do remember you need washer spacers between the engine to engine plate and a spacer between the front frame lugs to make it all rigid.
it is awkward to fit the engine and once i needed a crowbar after i got it all jammed. but that was with the pushrod cover attached so without it you should be ok.

The bike I am working with had no speedometer or drive unit when I purchased it.  The parts manual (1970 BSA Starfire) calls for a BG.5330/31 drive unit and the speedometer head designation is given as SSM.5007/02 for miles per hour.

When I had to make one for the same model I made a frame from ally which I could bend by hand an used cobex to make the screen. The cobex was thin and flexible so easy to shape to the screen especiallly as there are no complex curves. The hood poppers doubled as the means od fixing the cobex to the frame. It worked fine for many miles of daily use
