1933 BSA 350 Blue Star

Postby kawa » Wed Jun 02, 2010 5:48 pm

Just had a look at a 1933 BSA Blue Star 350 project last night, what I want to know is how common are they, are spare parts easy to come by. The bike had been a get to work bike up until the start of the war, the at some time in the early forties the owner at the time fell off the bike damaging the gearbox. It lay at the side of his house, covered up, until about ten years ago, when my friend bought it. Hes done a fair bit of work to it (frame and gearbox sorted), but the engine needs a total rebuild, along with the wheels and some of the tin work. Any info would be great, thanks

Hi Kawa,
what parts are you looking for ?
I have a part restored w33-9 special and a 1933 w33-4 350cc hand change ( running ). the special is a 500cc footchange.
Parts are not easy to find but don,t give up. Cornucopia enterprises may be able to help.
