Along with the boxes of the 1931 (not 1929 as previously thought) BSA Sloper I picked up out of the basement in Brooklyn there was most of a 56 Clipper... . Its rough and in boxes..... Tank is definitely wrong ... but it has the center oil tank , part of the unique rear fender bracket and other seemingly original stuff still intact..

I took this picture of it when it was still together and the other photo is after the motor was taken out





Frame was in the basement at Sixth Street Specials and the boxes of parts and motor were in Brooklyn... I have now collected everything ... Less room in my barn now so I had to build my new little shop...





I already know that I need a fuel tank, exhaust pipe and 21 front rim and 19 rear rim. Armour Exhaust in England will make a high pipe for me for 65 pounds ... Unchromed .. That way if the mounting positions are wrong then I can tweak it without messing up the new chrome...

My little shop is going to be getting a lot of use for the next decade

That bike cries out for a peanut tank. Spiffy fender, for certain.

Holy moley. I had your Clipper down as one of BSA's horrible little pre-C15 250cc bargain basement commuters, a sow's ear ready to gild. Heh, guess not. Is it really some kinda 500cc cousin to a Gold Star? Tell us some things you know about the model, please and if you feel like it.
