my mate went to local carboot last summer  and spotted an old  small wooden packing crate with bsa stamped on the side he lifted the lid and under the straw packing there was a brand new a10 crankshaft which he bought for £20 jammy sod

A bargain like that is problematic, if you are in need of a crank then well done, if not then buy it and sell it on otherwise you gain a cheap crank and the spend three grand buying bits to go around it, - is this my 50% Scots blood coming to the fore? ;)

Your mate must be related to my mate Bruce who I thought til this was the arch jumbler as he always finds a bargin ,as musky said who gives a dam what year it's a great find.
This reminds me of how things were in chaotic world of BSA . When I first went to work for Cundles in Liverpool,about 1970, Ilike all nosey 20yrs olds found the stores a veritable aladdins cave ,I shouldn't have been there but what the hell. Anyway after a few rummaging trips I found a A65 Spitfires engine lying in a box covered in all manner of bits and pieces burying it , no one knew about it  ;)(I bet ) and the store manager was really cheesed of 'cos he believed he was onto everything. Cheers bob
