Yeah it was missing completely, I found this bike in Normandy back when I would pick bikes myself to bring back to the US market. I just loved this old beast full of character

Would be nice to see the correct tank badge on that BSA, you already got it happening with the red stacked rifles on the black engine parts that looks sweet :cool: but the tank badge would totally set it off, what happened to the front fender did it shake off? I can see that happening, they shake enough to blur your vision if you got the nerve to twist the throttle hard (y) wicked bike in the dirt if you put full knobby tires on it.

No it's a full on suspension system minus fluid shock absorber technology. The spring on the bottom is suppose to have sufficient movement to drop into a pot hole or the top spring compress for a bump, the rear 19" wheel weighs a ton and the bike weighs a ton and has a huge long wheelbase so the thing never wants to move much anyway. They fly nice and level if you want to do big jumps.
