Hard time finding neutral
« on: 26.09. 2016 17:04 »
So I recently picked up a 1950 a10 chopper that's bin parked since 1974. I got it running took it for a ride and found the clutch was from fried. So order a new plates. But my major problem is it is so hard to find neutral I have to find it with my hand and even at that it's really hard to find. And yes it's not in 3-4th lol. Even with the old worn out clutch it was impossible to find the  elusive neutral any help would be nice thanks in advance

Nick,
  *welcome*, is your next post adding some pictures of the chop to the introductions section for us to ogle ?

I believe with the later unit twins, BSA did add neutrals between other gears too  *whistle* but typically not on the pre and semi unit motors

I had to google what instagram was  *shh*
managed to find it and its a nice machine  *wink2* just not convinced by the pack rack on the back.
There is a thread on adding pics, its pretty straightforward and I know we look forward to hearing more about the bike in an introduction thread  *whistle*

Well I'm trying to not change the bike much from how it was chopped back in 62. It's kind of a tribute to the original builder who's in a care home from alcoholism. But I'll look into making an introduction post and to figure this picture posting thing haha.

I suspected it was a period build, very cool and I love back story to a unique machine, he may sadly be pickled but he left a legacy for us to enjoy, well mainly you...  ;)
