Re: BSA C11 250 project

I liked it better as the stocker but thats just my opinion. Cool bike I'm looking for one myself.

Looks kinda cool...I like it, but if I might make a suggestion...try not to do anything to it that can't be easily undone...it's just too good to hack up and would look great restored.
Just curious...the last one of these I rode had absolutely terrible brakes, almost to the point of having none at all...do your brakes work?

Re: BSA C11 250 project

everything im doing to it is completely reversible not welding the frame ect, so i can put it back to stock with in an hour or so.

the brakes are fine actually just trying to get the carb to work, got a rebuild kit coming in the post this week hopefully.

Re: BSA C11 250 project

the bobbers all up and running just waiting for parts, so cracked on a little with the chop, starting to sort that nasty rear end out and in the proccess thought i'd open up to the london market, perfect for all you commuters folds up and fits on the train and in your office..

Cool. I have a 47 C11 that I'm trying to finish rebuilding, it's mostly there now just trying to figure out how some of the rear bits fit, then it's into the gearbox to figure why I only have 2 gears. Fun little bikes, not too much power or anything but something fun to get around with. The gearboxes are supposed to be pretty fragile so go easy on her.

its been a while, the c11's on the road as my daily for work, when im not breaking it.

the c12's getting there just stripped the frame down doing final welding and mocking up, cleaning the frame them in gonna send it off to the powder coaters.

a few of us down here have followed the masses and opened up a blog so check us out! http://darksidesotb.blogspot.com/
