Afternoon All,

Thought I'd join up as everything I Google on my new-to-me 1949 A7ST seems to lead me back here!

First time BSA & classic bike owner in Hampshire (UK), after wanting a BSA for many years I was finally in a position to buy one.

She's not the prettiest and not without her issues/questionable previous owner repairs and I've only done 30 miles on her so far, but I really enjoy the maintenance as well as the ride!

G'day Biker Chris  *welcome*
Thanks for the intro.
Good to acquire a bike that is rideable straight off. I know you will inspect/repair her with a fine tooth comb before doing any serious miles.
You will enjoy your long stroke. Lots of info in the "long stroke" section. Remember there's no such thing as a silly question. Some of the answers may be   *whistle*

It's a very good oil sieve, but she's brilliant!
