1960 BSA C15 kick start video

Finished fixing the clutch so shot a short video of me kicking my C-15 and puttering around the drive way.

I tickled the carb before turning on the camera, but she was dead cold, that's why I grab the pipe.

Enjoy:

Yeah,.... controls were not standardized on motorcycles until 1975. All the old Brit bikes I'm familiar with had the shifter on the right until 1975, and a bunch of American bikes also. For example a lot of older Harley's had right hand shifters.

I've only ever ridden right hand shift bikes, and on my Bonneville I flipped the shifter backward when I made the rear sets, so I have a GP shift pattern.

Having a kick start only bike with the shifter on the wrong side and backward is a bit of a theft deterrent however..... hahaha

Thanks. But it only has one point.... ;-)

The carb is a new concentric. I had to remove the old Monobloc because the slide was stuck, due to a distorted body, common problem with Amal carbs and overly ham fisted young men seeking to cure air leaks with torque on the mounting nuts.

I was always hoping that they would bring the bike to a halt frantically trying to shift gears with the brake pedal....
