Mocked up + Taillight

Posted: January 31, 2012 in 1971 BSA Lightning 650

More progress to report!  Got pretty much all the new parts on the bike now, including an inner fender we made from an old BSA fender that we cut.  Taillight was mounted up with a custom made bracket, and the petcocks have been put on the tank!

Parts put on

Got some new parts today for the BSA, and now have almost everything needed to finish it up!  Pics below:

Got some more work done on the winter rebuild.  The wiring has started to be changed over to get ready for the capacitor, as well as some other bits.  The pipes have been wrapped and new mufflers will be grabbed.  The cylinder has been repainted, as well as the pipes under the wrap,.  The external oil filter is also all set up, and is just waiting for some new oil for the next time we start it up!
