scrap

has this piece of junk been in here before or is it merely drearily similar to so many other pieces of junk assembled by the sad, desperate and deluded? Why did anyone bother their arse?

Yep, couldn't figure out how it was a BSA either. I suppose it relates to the frame number that's still either on the bit of frame that hasn't been cut off or which was stuck back on after the back of the frame was hacked about. i don't know where a BSA frame number would be, never had one. Are they near the headstock?

Triumphs are, so they well be on BSAs.
