If it dosnt leak then you must have done something wrong.
I've had this bike with me for some time now. The owner's 80 and with a heart condition that's gotten worse in the past year. Because I couldnt get the bits, the rebuild took some time (almost a year). The old man was affraid he wouldnt ride it any more, so when I called him to say the bike was ready, last friday night, he showed up Saturday morning... I guess the love for bikes doesnt fade away as you grow old.
brilliant i hope i am still riding at 80.i bet you made his year fixing that BSA
