Velocity Stacks

Posted: March 28, 2012 in 1971 BSA Lightning 650

Finally got a pair of velocity stacks on the BSA.  Took a while to find a place that had them, but Maciag Motorcycles came through!  Here are some pics:

Sonny was asked to help out with a weld on a Harley-Davidson engine case that had broken a bit.  It is made of aluminum so it isnt the easiest thing to do.  Never turning down a challenge, Sonny got to work!  The pics are all below!

Got some new tires on the RD!  Bridgestone BT-45’s.  They have been working out really great so far!  The inner fender also finally arrive and will be mounted sometime soon!

Got the new front turn signals on and connected.  I was also able to get all the wiring working again, so the bike is 100% ready to go!…Almost.  The rear brake light switch had broken while adjusting, so I have a new one on the way along with some bar end mirrors.  In about a week or two this thing should be legal!

Clipons mounted

Got the clipons mounted.  There will be some adjusting for the brake lines and etc, but this got a good feel for how they will be.  I did a test ride, and it was actually not bad riding at all.
