Recession what recession
« on: 04.06. 2010 14:02 »
BSA frame on Ebay ( item No 280513502218 )
Currently 32 bids last one £810
No details of frame numbers given ,in fact no details at all.
Looks to have a kink in the frame for oil pump but not much of a kink really, can't really see much detail and no extra images there.
Maybe some of the bidders know more about it than is given in the description, and strangely in this day and age no mention of RGS

1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco

What the heck was that frame??? It finished at £1,320.00. Probably the poorest description I've ever seen on ebay and possibly one of the poorest pictures too. Can anyone enlighten me?

very strange
However I just picked up an A10 filter (complete) for £13 so I guess it works both ways

I couldnt believe it when I saw it

listed as bsa frame

and there it was the oil pump link for the goldie oil pump. I did wonder how many would spot it

I bet the vendor who pulled it out of the back of a shed couldnt believe how much it went for

There was an engine, seat & gearbox as well.

I suspect the guy knew exactly what he had & was relying on serious punters recognising it & avoiding the usual ebay mosquitos.
OK, I'm quite cynical!

Shame to split it though!
