Re: Seat front brackets

I have a similar hinged seat to the items discussed on my 71 B50SS. I had removed it to have it upholstered this month.

Let me know if i can help out with additional pictures/measurements.

Re: B50SS Mirrors

Thanks for helping out a rookie!

Much appreciated.

I'll head over to a shop around here to see what they have. I'm in need of a new set of tires too.

B50SS Mirrors

Afternoon All, Taking steps towards getting this bike on the road. I'm looking for a set of lever-mount mirrors for the safety test. Ontario Regs. state bikes built after January 1971 require mirrors to pass a road test. My Handbook and Replacement Parts book don't list a part number for mirrors on ...

Re: My B50SS

Very cool! Looking forward to seeing some more pictures.

I haven't even started my restoration work yet. Ordered some pieces, but winter is a bit too cold these days to spend time in the garage.

Happy New Year!

Re: B50 registry

If you let people know where you are in the world, you might find someone to help you out. For instance, I'm in the northern part of Virginia, USA and I know people who would help in the Southern part of Maryland, USA. Thanks to both of you for the help! I'm in Ottawa (Canada) these days. The bike ...

Re: 1971 B50SS Winter Project

I've also added my information to the online registry (as i'm sure my grandfather never touched a computer). Not sure if my information was processed, or if would even hear anything back about it. http://b50.org/osod.htm I'm interested in seeing how my grandfather came about the B50. Unfortunately h...

It looks like it's in great condition, but I need to give it a good inspection before i try to start it up. I'v...
