Seeing itâ€™s possible to graft the 500 Rotax into the B25 frame, albeit with some finagling. - see Honeysucklekisserâ€™s brilliant job. Iâ€™d like to put forward the idea of squeezing the MT500 into the B40WD frame. The BSA lump is slow for modern roads, and spares arenâ€™t as universal or cheap as they once were. It would be a necesssary to upgrade the brakes to handle the increase in performance, possibly the 8â€ť TLS front. What one would end up with would be a classic bike, with army styling combined with reliable road going performance. Good enough to be used as everyday transport and preferable to plodding along at 40-50 on summer afternoon A road jollies trying to pretend itâ€™s still 1960. Question is, how much and how difficult would it be ?
