My father bought this bike new in 1968. He then sold it in 1975. Several years ago, tracked it down and my brothers and I purchased it back as he had always missed it. He passed away this past year and its just collecting dust.
To my knowledge, nd my dad's, t was never fully restored. It has had several parts replaced. The original tank is off the bike and is used as a spare. The one on the bike was repainted several years ago. The bike runs great, just rode it today (9/5/15) through all four gears. The shifter is setup reversed for some reason so first gear is up and the rest are down. It can be switched back by pulling off the cover and flipping the linkage (directions in the manual). Brakes work fine. Needs new tires and a few small parts (kick starter rubber cover, hifter rubber cover, hrottle cable routed correctly, tc.).
This bike isn't a show winner but a true original and survivor. The chrome has some rust. The cylinder cases aren't polished. The tank paint is in really good shape, he frame is painted well and looks good.
Spares: spark plug, il tank, ide cover, uel tank, evers, ew handlebar
There is also a new, EM tool kit that took years to track down.
All of the manuals will be included as well. The owner's manual, orkshop manual, nd spare parts books are BSA originals. There's also a new copy of the workshop manual. Dad would work out of the copy so the original stayed in good shape.
Please let me know if you have any questions,
