1953 BSA Update
Took another pass at the BSA
I've replaced the back wheel with a 1965 that I had in the shed.
The '61 it came with was warped and a bit rusty.
The other '61 I put on was clean but warped beyond fixing.

I also added a new shifter cable, raised the seat a bit and turned down the bars.
The bike rides and shifts nicely with a 20T cog on the back.


Still to do:
Replace chain
Replace the plastic grips with a set of the rubber Raleighs I like.
