Where do you live?
Have you joined a club? (if not join one in your area)

Take your time, do not rush it, do it properly, if in doubt ask and get several opinions - if done properly you will be extremely proud and satisfied and the end result will be fabulous!

Try not to take the cheap route, get the nasty expensive stuff done professionally, if money is tight, save up for any expensive items or engineering work that needs to be done - at a later stage when funds permit.

Do not become despondent when you hit a problem - just persevere!

There are plenty of people around who can offer sound advice – most based on experience having learnt the hard way!

Above all enjoy the project, very rewarding once it all starts to come together!

Please keep us posted with commentary and pics, take lots of them for future reference - preferably with a decent camera and not a cell phone.

Good luck.

Kind regards from Johannesburg

Took some parts in for chroming (rims,spokes,handle bars and seat springs) and finished up lacing the front wheel. Do someone know of a BSA/classic bike club in the Pretoria area?
