Hi everyone, New to this forum and the Bsa. Been biking on modern equipment for 30 years but gave up
5 years ago (things were just getting to fast) I Have recently had a great deal on a 3 bike package which
includes a 1950 B31 running on the road and 2 A10s one 1959 and the other 1960.
And all 3 are correct frame and engine numbers from new, all on original plates.
The 59 is a project in the making and the 60 is all in boxes but restored except engine, so many hours and
much to learn.
