bsa 120 POWER UNIT with a goodenough WATERPUMP

Post by kevjhnsn on Sun Dec 14 2014, 16:53

I got this set up with the engine incomplete, but at the last rally managed to pick up a bsa 120cc doner unit for a cylinderhead ,carb linkage ect that was needed for mine.
i have managed to loose all but a few shots of the before and during picks ,so this story will jump faster than usual for me Smile
heres a clue to the state it was all in before i set to work






had about 6 colours and 1.5mm of paint thickness were the paint still was left
been restored back to the first topcoat colours .

Hi Kev,
Cracking transformation there.You were lucky to find a good donor engine - just shows these donors are out there, its just a matter of finding them.
All the best,
Kev.

Hello Kev - I have to echo kevs sentiments - a lovely restoration - and a lucky find - are the internals as clean as the outside? All working well?

best
