Re: B50 rear fender

Thanks for the offer, but I’m trying to keep the original paint. I’ve got a purple b50 and it’s in good shape, but I need to replace the rear fender. It’s got a little crack. I don’t want to repaint it. Thank you for looking out.

Thanks for all the responses. I’m going to keep a lookout on eBay for a thatched bottom with a barrel on the side!

Do you know if the originals had a spring attachment like a hook, or like a barrel?

Prop stand

Hello all, I was wondering if anyone could tell me this: does the original b50ss prop stand have a hatch pattern texture on the bottom of the foot? I’m looking at buying an OEM stand and it does not have any texture on the bottom. Was trying to figure out why it wasn’t there if it is an original par...

Hello all,
Can anyone tell me if there’s a difference- what is the difference between the seat on the b50 with the Euro tank vs the regular tank?
I’ve got the larger tank- and am thinking about buying a new seat- but don’t know if I need a different one...

Prop stand and sump plate

Hello all,
I’m looking for a b50ss prop stand and a sump guard. I’ve seen a few on eBay, but they are in rough shape, or brand new. Not trying to be Goldilocks here, but looking for something in good used condition. Let me know if you have something! Thanks-

Re: B50ss purple fender

Pattern ones are available, and a rattle can can produce good results. I guess you are searching for a bash plate as well, maybe you could swap that A65 side stand for a proper one too :shock: probably best to colour match what you have as the rest of the paintwork is bound to be faded,.....There w...

Hey all- I posted this the other day and got a good lead, but I realized I posted it in the wrong category. I’m looking for someone in the states who might have a line on some factory purple paint. I’m looking to get a fender painted with the silver undercoating and all- to match the og paint on the...

Hello-
Does anyone know of a person or place in the states where I could get a fender painted in the Bsa purple paint. Done right with the silver under coating and everything?
Thanks!

Re: B50ss straight 50?

It seems like the factory specs say 20w-50. But, I think I’ll stay with the straight 50 since it’s been good so far.
Thanks again all-

B50ss straight 50?

Hello- I have a 1972 b50ss oil in frame. I got it last year and love riding it. I’m pretty sure that the guys who did some work on it, to get it running, said to use straight 50 in the frame. But I’m not positive. Does anyone know what is recommended? I’m pretty sure there is straight 50 in there no...

Re: Starting a B50

I hold the compression lever and slowly move the kick lever all the way down. Then I let go of the comp lever and bring the kick half way back up. Then kick it down. Doesn’t take much force at all. Kicks right over. I always tickle the carb first. Mine starts a little easier when cold. If it’s hot, ...

You're right! Unfortunately I'm a teacher, so... Here are some more pics- In the last one you can see the fender situation... I've got a very cool guy that lives nearby in SC working on getting it running. I think it's almost there! http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e203/Steve_Tirozzi/IMG_2236_zpsyc...

B50ss purple fender

Anyone have a purple front fender? Bought a 72 b50ss but the front fender is in bad shape. You can't see it in the picture but the front has a bunch of rust and welding where the little support rod was welded on after breaking. Thanks! http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e203/Steve_Tirozzi/IMG_2190_zp...
