Seat Base

Post by minetymenace » Wed Mar 21, 2018 7:27 pm

Wanted: seat base only for 83-3198, this is for a large tank, (short nose on the seat). Condition not important as the back half is going to be chopped off....Why? That's what BSA did to make the short seat on the <12fs

This is about the only picture I have of it in the same trim as it was when I bought it in 1980 (except for the front mudguard).

Hi Minety,

can't help with the seat I'm afraid, but I had heard tell of a BSA service sheet that described the method for B50s...

I've been hunting but couldn't find it, any clues as to where I might be able to see it?

Hi Malc, that is the kind of thing, but yours is for a small tank (large nose forward of the mounting). Would still need work cutting the front off and re-covering. Thank you for the offer, but I should have a dual seat (somewhere, I hope) so best you keep that and I'll keep looking, don't want to unnecessarily mutilate a perfectly good seat. Thanks again.
