What I saw had a chrome rear mudguard. Don't the B50s have painted ones?
Depends on the model, although I don't think anyone has one with the same parts that it left the factory with. This one has the 21" front wheel so a bit trail/motocross style.

I always wanted one of them. I had a C15, and a Starfire, then a load of Gold Flashes. Now all I have left apart from modern bikes is an A10 that I built from scratch. It started life as a Gold Flash, but I changed it. It has the aluminium head off a Road Rocket. Chrome RGS type mudguards, Gold Star forks , alloy rims and a rocking horse sh¦t 190mm Gold Star brake in the front wheel. I always liked BSAs because they got the ergonomics just right for me. I must have had about 50 other bikes of every type, but they never felt quite right.

Yes I like BSAs my first bike was a Bantam D14 and have had many different styles of bikes over the years but usually return to singles and twins as I like the character that they have.

I haven't forgotten you. I'm not very well at the moment - presently in hospital having some tests. I'll be in touch soon.

It's no intrusion. It's my hobby.

I'm OK, back at home now, but got to go back tomorrow for scans, which should reveal the cause of my problems, then we can concentrate on fixing them.
