I live in Po-dunk Louisiana and there are few people who have even heard of a BSA. Due to time restrictions (JOB, Family , School) for the next few months I will not have the time I need to get it road worthy. Who here is in the business of rebuilding and restoring British motors.

bsa motors are not rocket science.....power, gas, fire....gotta have it to make them run...ive built many bsa motors...and learned hands on by gathering as much info as possible on each scenario....the fallas at rask cycle in evans city,pa are great...and mr raber at raber speed shop in cali....are the absolute best two ive dealt with...there are others...the trick with bsa is clean it well.....follow torque specs and buy a great set of witworth sockets and box ends.....happy wrenching

I'd recommend Trumpnut. I'm getting all my Triumph Pre-Unit parts from him, and he's helping me do the engine and transmission rebuild (and by help I mean show me how to do it).

In any case, he is an expert on anything British and an expert on machining parts as well - so if your rebuild needs a new part that isn't available, he can probably make it. I was at his shop yesterday and he was showing me a BSA that he just finished rebuilding. Top quality work.

I agree with Tat2, do it yourself. Take as long as it takes and wrench away. You'll appreciate it a hell of a lot more and be able to sort it out if and when it craps out on you on a run. Its well worth the wait.

I like to do as much work as possible myself, but most of us (with some notable exceptions) need a hand with some part of the build. It helps to have an expert on your side.
