Someone I once knew bought a BSA A10 off of a friend of mine and then thought it could do with a rebuild. He got stuck in and stripped it down to its parts. But he found out that it was a bit harder to recondition the parts and put it all back together again. So he put the lot in a tea chest and stuck the frame and wheels on top and left in in the cellar. And a couple of years later sold the lot for fifty quid.

I think you need a special sewing machine to work on shearling ? . This could of halted the job ,but in its disassembled state I would put the value at $75.00 max not 250.00 pounds Sterling . Is this auction from one of our members in Poland ? .

Yes, you need an overstitching machine. If he had plenty of time he could have overstitched the panels by hand and then machine stitched the leather binding. That's a skilled job in itself.
