Re: 1972 B50 SS Return to Flight.

Hi it was originally all purple, but decided to paint it in the proposed 72 colours. The stripes were masked out using a original 71 tank for dimensions. Hope this helps.

Re: Lock down projects

Hello Claus. Thanks for the interest. There seems to be varying figures on exactly how many were built, somewhere between 20 and 30, but I can't confirm that number, some were just show models, some were road test bikes that didn't have production parts on them, others seem to be exactly what was in...

Re: Lock down projects

Hello Claus. I managed to acquire another frame and was hoping to build a Bandit, but the engine parts are impossible to find, so I decided to build a t100 engined version of the Bandit, using as many standard parts as possible. The modifications I have kept to a minimum. I had to add extra brackets...

Re: Lock down projects

Thanks for the compliment Jack, it was quite a fiddly part to make. Completed the inlet manifolds and fitted the carbs, as you see they are tucked away just like the original Bandit.

Re: Lock down projects

Another piece of completed, had to make some mods to the front to clear the frame, as this side off the frame isn't offset for clearance, fury original is above my mirror copy.

Re: Lock down projects

Hi Ian
The frame is an actual fury/bandit one suppose I should call it a bandit as its having a t100 engine in it.
The A65 is a 66 spitfire which I am slowly trying to get back to standard.

Re: 1972 B25SS FRONT ENGINE MOUNT

Couldn't get one of my B50 engines out of the frame, due to the previous owner missing out all the spacers.
Had to remove the rocker box studs out one by one, take the box off and lift the engine up vertically.
Quite a time consuming job, bsa fitted them for a reason.
