Delboy told us he’d be up to Milton Keynes to see us this weekend, but we didn’t expect the mode of transport he chose to turn up in.

Austins BSA Under Repair

Filed under: General — Dougyt @ 6:06 pm

Delboy and Austin have been hard at work to repair the damage done to the BSA by Austin’s unfortunate accident. In the picture below they have removed the headlight and mudguard (fender to our American cousins). The mudguard has been sent away for repair and spraying, and he has bought a new light unit with everything in.

In the meantime Delboy has resprayed the fork shrouds and bottoms which involved removing the wheel and masking the tank (Note the green polythene bag to cover the tank in lieu of masking tape in the picture below).

The mudguard is back from painting and ready to be refitted, and hopefully the BSA can be put back together and back on the road in just a few days time weather permitting. I’m also informed the wheel is away for rim replacement, and new spokes, and the centre hub is to be repainted, but not due to the accident it was just convenient while it was out. The wheel has been away for just over a day and is already awaiting collection, good service from the wheel refurbisher.

Delboys Mate Breaks BSA A10 Round Bends

Filed under: General — Dougyt @ 4:57 pm

Delboys mate Austin was on his way from seeing him on his 1950 BSA A10 rigid when Delboy got a phonecall. Austin had come off the bike going around some double bends nearby. Delboy went and rode the bike back while Mrs Delboy took him to the hospital.

Luckily Austin was only bruised, and the bike had minimal damage as these photos show.

The above pic shows the BSA’s bent mudguard.

This shows the front headlamp bent, and the forks were out of line.

It is now being fixed, just awaiting the mudguard to be straightened and sprayed. The headlamp and forks are all repaired/ replaced.
