This sounds like a fun project - a number of years ago, I was looking for a 'project' bike, and
almost bought a somewhat running BSA Lightning for the project. I then was distracted by
Nortons (and like many men, I still am, even without the Norton Girl adverts), before I finally
decided, that if I worked on a bike, I'd want to be able to ride it on trips over at least several
hundred miles, and went back to the Marque which I knew best, and which wouldn't let me
down (at least as frequently) and finally bought my R65LS (Rosie).
Pictures when you can post them, please !!
