Hi all,

Just joined in the BCF Bulletin Boards today. I got hooked in searching for KTM manuals. On the subject though, I've collected quite a few manuals for different bikes in electric format over the years if anyone really has need. Hope I'm not stepping on any toes here. I think we need to share when we can. I guess you contact me through this board for further comms. Here's what I've got:

Yamaha Raptor 660
BSA A Models
BSA A65s Models
BSA A75s Models
BSA Bantams
BSA Victors (Several)
BSA B44s
BSA B50s
BSA B25
BSA 500 MX
BSA B31, 32, 33, & 34 Models
BSA B25 & C25
BSA B25 Starfire
BSA B25 SS & B25 T
BSA C10 & C11
BSA Beagle K1
BSA Starlight 75
BSA Sunbeam Scooter

The BSA Literature covers several years and is in some cases shop manuals and some parts manuals. I'll add more later.

Best to all, Dan
