1 + 1 = 1, hopefully.

You may have seen Witold's BSA OIF (oil in the frame) project from a good while back; that was a nearly complete bike that had been found in a warehouse and needed a full rebuild.

Our man had actually started making progress, as you can see from today's featured post, however when he took a closer look at the frame it became apparent that it was quite badly bent. He took it to a local frame "specialist" who botched it even further to the point that it is now totally unusable.

So, what to do? One option would have been to source another frame, and keep looking the other missing parts. Another was to rescue this poor thing and apply the shaky math you see above: 1 bike + 1 bike = 1 complete and working bike, hopefully without too many parts leftover, or that we'd still need to find.

There is a LOT of work to do, but by no means impossible. Witold wastes no time and tears into bike number 2:
One thing's for sure: when it's done, this will be a spectacular motorcycle. There is a fairly ambitious deadline floating around, and currently it does feel like spring down here, so there isn't that much time to get this done. Press on man!
