The lightning Project, 12…

I  have slightly neglected the A65L due to sorting out the Guzzi Eldo, but when time has allowed I have been picking off the jobs that need doing. The biggest holdup has been sorting a replacement set of forks, as when I bought the BSA it had the wrong year forks and front wheel fitted. But finding the correct forks proved to be a lot harder than I thought it would be, but with the help of one of the inmates on I was able to get a set that needed a full rebuild.

Back at the beginning of the year I found a complete front wheel at Shepton Mallet VMCC jumble, and then I grabbed some tyres at the following Kempton, I have since fitted the tyres and new tubes, but managed to pinch and hole the new tube on the front wheel.

I also have the motor all bolted up and ready to go, just need to add fuel and oil, so when I finally get the front end all back in the frame, I can get the bike off the bench.
