Will the naked lady come to life?

Posted 12-05-2011 at 07:47 AM by Curley

As the winter months rolls in and Christmas looming around the corner, the project slowed down a little.

As you can see in the previous update, the lady is pretty much naked only with her heart in place!
We have been trying to get her started without the battery but it looks like the battery is needed. Took me some time to get around to buying the battery as i had to do stuff( some people call it "work"!) to pay bills, feed the family and restore a bike!

In the mean time, i have been scouting around for several parts for the bike, particularly the front end. Fork, headlamp, headlamp shroud etc.
I posted a request on a few BSA forums and one gentleman got back to me saying he has almost everything i was looking for and sent me pictures. I must say they needed some work but not in bad shape at all! So i was happy!!!

He even quoted me prices for the items and i pretty much took all he had. As soon as i agreed to which parts i wanted and asked if he could give a little discount since i am taking the lot, i never heard back from him!!!!

So back to the drawing board looking for the original forks and headlamp.

This week hopefully we will get her bring her back to life for the first time since she was laid to rest 14 years ago!
I have made a temporary wiring harness and hope i have done it right as the last time i did a wiring job was wiring a whole house in 1990!
I guess there is only one way to find out! So wish me luck will need it coz i used to get electrocuted every now and then when i was an electrician!

    Sounds like its coming along. Congrats. Good luck with the front end. That's going to be our issue when we start restoring the BSA A65. Right now I believe it has a Honda front end on it.
