Congratulations Beat, you have found a treasure chest full of gold!

Finding a genuine GS BB/CB/DB34 frame will be difficult and costly but a B31 frame will fit nicely and will look almost identical to the real thing. However, being so close to a true GS frame the B31 item is also becoming increasingly challenging to find. You can modify an A7/10 frame to take the single cyl. engine by making a bend on the lower right front downtube. It's not too difficult, - I did it myself some years ago.
When you manage to find a frame to take your GS engine make sure it's from a 1956 model or earlier. Later models have the full width wheel hubs which doesn't look right with the GS engine. Off course it's a matter of taste I know.

Have your tried to contact: http://www.cornucopia-enterprises.de ? They are in Germany and seems to have a lot of early BSA stuff.

Good luck with your project and I look forward to see updates on the progress :grin:

Brgds,
Claus

hallo claus

thank you for this tip, - yes, why not using a a10 fraim for this project :?: :?: :?:

the plan for this bike is to build a vintage sidecar motocross vehicle, one as I was using it 50 years ago.

so engine and fraim needs to be out of this periode, gearbox willbe from a norton commando, wheels and sidecar will be self made.

about the fraim: as long as the gold star engine is fitting in by the hight and allines by the plates, I guess the rest it will be doable.

so, - if someone knows ore do have a A7 or a A 10 fraim for sale, - please let me know......

I would love to try to help you Beat, but the last time I tried to help ship some parts to the UK I made an enemy- because UPS charged an arm and a leg to ship from here (NYS) to a port in Florida. Not only lost a friend, but also lost a few hundred dollars.

thanks Jack for your answer.

no, it is not worth to loose friends or money, - of cause not !

the situation of not finding a fraim around 500 $ now is making me thinking for a other solution.

I guess I just have to convince my dear wife first for this Idea.... <213 <214

Great work beat! Always more than one way to skin a cat! (Even when all cats are black... ;-) )

Wonder what you're thinking?? <201
