I am so excited !! I have been looking for GP carbs for my 1966 BSA Spitfire at a reasonable price for over a decade.. Shockingly this pair was on Ebay and promoted on facebook Spitfire group page so I was sure they would go for the normal price or more but I won the auction at half price so now my search is complete. 1966 was the only year that BSA's production racer had the GP carbs because they were not practical for street use since they do not have an idle circuit per se. So everyone took them off from new. Replacing them with the run of the mill Amal carbs.


Aren't they pretty.

Guh, guh, gorgeous, Wade! What's the bore, 34mm or so?

Interesting that such a small (-seeming) float chamber can get adequate fuel to those big devils.
