It´s no problem at all, I just collect your street address and there you are.

This ment just to be a pointer to where in the world we are.

Dont want to show exactly where our treasures are.
This is a safety issue.

I noticed that the location map has no B50MX near Washington, DC. The B50MX I gave my grandson is in Southern Maryland, about 40 miles south of Washington, DC. I bought it as a basket case in 1974 and then it sat indoors until 1994 and then in storage until 2001. From 2001 until just recently, it sat in the rain. Now, we are working on restoring it. I'll let my grandson register it with you but in case you just want to know, it is B50MX JG00248 (numbers match). The reason it was a basket case is that the kid who owned it took the muffler off and annoyed the neighborhood until the people got together and destroyed it one night with hammers! Fortunately, the only engine damage was some cylinder fins and the primary cover. They destroyed the tank, fenders, lights, but didn’t touch the wheels or frame. His father sold it t me for $50 just ot get it out of his house.

Please get the chip of the old block to start a thread in Project Bikes. I thought vigilantism was a trait of the Wild West, not the East Coast in the 70's. I trust the rule of law now persists.

Hey All!

I'm new to the B50.org forum. I just inherited a 1971 B50SS from my grandfather who passed away two years ago. His name was Jack and he had the bike for as long as i can remember.

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've been flying through How to Restore Your Motorcycle - Mark Zimmerman, and i have the original replacement parts list. My grandfather was a mechanic and meticulous by nature... so i don't expect the road ahead to be too difficult.

Thanks for the forum!!! What a great resource.

Here are a few pics of the bike:

Cheers,

Nate

<135 To the forum Northern_Nate.

I couldn't see any pictures on your link to photobucket, you can post them here, why not start a new topic in Projects or Members?

If you look at the "Spareparts" button at the top of the page, it has all the parts lists you will ever need!! Would you also update your profile and let everyone know roughly where you live please?

Home woke done, look forward to hearing that the heirloom is roadworthy <069

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 was originally located in Porquis Junction, ON (for as long as i can remember).

I'll update my profile information.

Owners database for BSA B50 & B25 1971-1971 have been working for a couple of years.
Now I have build a new owners database for all BSA PRE OIF Singles ( 1959-1970 )
So now we have owner databases for all BSA Unit Singles 250cc – 500cc ( 1959 – 1973 )

Welcome to register your bike.

Is this still active and working properly? All attempts to add my bike were rejected.
Plus the location map throws up a Google error dated 2011.

it still works. I on vacation for now and will take care of it then. So sorry for that.



About the Google map: Google have been changing systen several times last years for google maps. To many hits and you have to pay for that service.

Not easy to keep up with them-
