Moin, my Name is Uwe and I live in northern of Germany about 20 km south of Bremen! I retired last year and hope to find some time to ride my A10 RGS!
At the time I'm building a NorBSA, a wideline frame with a twin carb A10 engine! I have a small workshop with lathe and milling machine and try to do most things by myself! Cheers

welcome Uwu *welcome* nice beezer, I am starting to build a norbsa with slimline  frame and A7 ss engine .it will be slow progress but I have got the Suzuki fork yokes in and starting to  build a rrt2 with lower road friendly  first gear . undecided on a back wheel at the moment , it has a box section swinging arm , but will put the Norton one in just to get it wheeled about , the stub axle is not long enough on the threads with this swinging arm to be safe, but a rolling frame just to see where everything will fit is better than no rolling frame. good luck with your build *smile*

Moin Keith,

my NorBSA is also a long time project! I will take the Norton roadholder front fork with a Norton duplex wheel! For the rear I have modified a Triumph conical
brake which should go in the Norton swing arm!

Cheers
