    Hello All,

    New to the forum. I just inherited a BSA motorcycle from my grandfather. I’m told it’s a 1971, but I have yet to see it in person.

    I’ve uploaded an image for reference.

    Thanks!

    Nate

    Cannot be certain as only one of your images displays. However, it appears to be a circa 1971 or 1972 BSA 440 Victor. It can probably be accurately identified by its engine and frame numbers. Can you supply those?

    Thanks boss!

    The bike is slowly on route. I’ll have the information once it gets here. Could be a couple of months.

    Glad I found this forum. I look forward to using this place as a sounding board as i meticulously try to bring this bike back to life.

    Until then!

    Cheers,
    Nate

    I was just mailed the replacement parts list and a few more photos! The bike is a BSA 1971 Gold Star 500SS.

    They have been uploaded to the gallery associated with my profile. I will be sure to add to the gallery once the bike is in hand.

    Cheers,

    Morning All! I added a couple of new pictures to the list.

    The bike looks to be in great condition. It must have sat for a bit, as the front tire has a flat side and needs to be replaced.

    Next step is to buy a battery to check out the electrical. It’s the components I find the least intimidating and easiest to understand.

    I also found http://www.burtonbikebits.net to purchase any replacement parts, like an air filter and such.

    More to come once i wrap my head around tackling this project!

    Cheers,
    Nathan
