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
