A recent shot taken at Maxwelton Beach near our place on Whidbey Island. I have new fork seals in and the starting is sorted out, this is a one-or-two kick bike now, no matter its temperature. Fantastic.
The bike after a few years in service. Need to redo the fork seals, which gave out after about 300 miles, and nearly all of the reproduction rubber has deteriorated depressingly quickly. As with nearly all British twins, despite careful prep the engine started leaking copious amounts of oil almost immediately. A real shocker!
Otherwise, it’s a nice bike to ride, and I’m finally getting it sorted out after some benign neglect as we’ve moved a lot over the past few years.
This is a chronicle of the adventure I had restoring my ’54 BSA A10 “Golden Flash.” This is largely an archive of the restoration–though if anything of note happens to “Fireball” I’ll try and note it here.
History: This site used to be a “static” site with a “frame set” and other annoyances. I figured it would be a simple matter to grab a WP blog and throw the content in it, making it more usable at the same time.
