Top shock mounts rearward,
Chain adjustment at s/arm pivot,
Oil tank in backbone 4/stroke,
Engine cradle mounts looks like it would house a BSA engine?
Long backbone,

Could it be a very early BSA/CCM?

Prize goes to Rosco  :)   Geoff, close, but not that close. There are slight differences between the Stroka frames and the early CCM ones.

The frame is by Mark Cook at PES here in the UK.
I wanted to preserve my original 73 Bob Wright bike so I hatched a plan to build an exact replica. I took my original frame to Mark who copied it. He did vow he would never make a std 73 frame again ! It was a right PITA. Mark's usual 73 frames are of the later 73 "SP" type.

Going to be a beaut Grouty. I’m starting on a replica of the BSA speedway bike, Nigel Boocock tested. Have a CCM motor that a mate used in our Junior MX sidecars back in the day. 500cc or under. He won many Victorian State titles on it and placed in the Aus titles. The gearbox always blew so he carved it off and put 4 studs to run an A10 gearbox. So the motor is very close to how the speedway motor looked. Going to put it in a jawa frame until I can get my hands on a Rod North frame.

does anyone paint the CCM frames in a resto, or is that a criminal act?
