restoring bikes is great fun - when you have the money that is

i restored a 1955 BSA for an old boss of mine about 10 years ago - luckily it was all there - would be near impossible finding parts for it - i did have photos of it somewhere

after some searching i believe it is

Top steering stem bearing 25x47x15
Bottom steering stem bearing 30x55x17

ill visit the bearing shop tomorrow and hopefully they can help me out.

The bottom bearing is the same as basically all DR200,250,600,750

the top. who knows!

Edit these are correct:


DR200,250,600,750, RM80/125, TS125/250

So i finally had some free time and managed to get the correct head stem bearings on. As you can see i had to grind a millimetre off the top of the stem to allow the bearing to slide on. Pain in the arse but happy its done.



new pro taper bars instead of the shitty pinkish/red Pazzaz



Also swapped the blue fork gators/boot for black - although these arent as big in diameter so it leaves that section just under the boot exposed. Im not bothered at the moment. I could swap them again for larger 90's style XR fork covers or buy some wetsuit-style seal savers.
