Hi the green is no more,spent 4 hours sandblasting the frame and parts,another 3 hours yesterday trying to get the right colour (gold/bronze ).I bought new exhausts ,handle bar,spark plugs.and will have to buy a new chain,clutch roller,ball bearings.I was going to buy new rims,but have cleaned one rim (which was surprisingly heavier than it looked ) with wire wool 00 and the name jones popped up,the chrome is pitted but still not bad ( I do´nt want the bike to look new).Quick question,when I order chrome spikes,is there a one size fits all ???? is the Flash the same as the star ???( are all the a 10 wheel sizes the same ??).Would be thankfull for a reply.Tomorrow I have a eye test,maybe next week or the week after the theroy test,the hopefully by Febuary the practical.Visited  the german MOT today to ask about transfering the Brittish documents into german...this is going to be a long long haul to get the correct procedures,and tests,anyway,hurrah for the EEC.Collect the frame from the sprayers tomorrow,Last night I could´nt sleep wondering if I´d chosen the correct colour,and went down first thing this morning to double check the sample..everything OK.Once one gets into this obsession its hard to focus on other more important things.

Stephen,
Have you contacted the BSA Owners Club in Germany?

http://www.bsa-oc.de/index.html


Finding a local member could be a great help to you, especially regarding getting stuff registered. Their site shows a couple of specials, so there must be some flexibility in what they allow on the roads. despite what they may tell you
Often in these cases you just need to come across as far more knowledgeable than the official that you are dealing with. which is usually not that difficult.

Cheers,
Iain
