If it's '70s and has a swing arm, not a sprung hub, unit constution engine vertical cylinder, not sloped 25deg. you have a 350cc Tiger Cub. '66 and later had a BSA frame. '70 the 350 was slated to be changed to a twin, not sure if the single was still produced after '70s. The Tigers were avalable in 250cc, 350cc, 500,, singles, but the unit consts. were mostly 350cc. and 250cc Cubs.

thanks for the info 36 indian. I will have to look at it this evening to see if it is slanted or not. here is a photo of one that I found on the net that is the same color and it is a swing arm bike. are these pretty rare? this one was on the net for sale at $5000. mine is locked up so I don't know how bad it is yet, and can I still get parts for it? it was too big. I'll try and resize or put it in my gallery.

Looks like the Tiger Cub, T20C, I think it's 350cc. The 250cc is a Terrier and as I recall the 250 the engine sits differantly. Some contacts are, Gary Nixon, he's in Md . He sets these up and still races them. I've meet him at shows and got his autograph. www.garynixon.com . deerparkcycle.com, locustgroverestoration.com
Bristol Hills Cycle, ph 315-597-3489 There's a guy in northeast I'd skip, Brit-tech, talks a good line but screws the orders up and won't refund. I'm not sure how rare the cubs are, there were popular in the 70's people rode the shit out of them as scamblers after you got the lucas electrics staightened out.

Thanks for the info. the engine in mine sits up right, no slant. and the oil is in the frame, had one guy tell me that they only did that in 70 and 71. and they are not that popular. then he offered me $200 for it for parts.

Sounds more like 250cc Terrier, T25, I've seen these in scambler form only, but preety sure there was a street version, don't remember the oil in frame setup.
Only thing i recall about Terrier's were they were like bad gas, the sooner they passed out the shop door, the better it felt! Some may say they were correctly named after a dog. Try the contacts from the earlier post, they can tell you value, probably rare and is worth something to the correct buyer!

Cool

there's a shipping Co. in Baltimore thats reputed for good rates and taking good care of M/C, but slow as shit, stories of 2 months cross country, but I guess cheap can have its trade offs. Is Gary high bid? If so see if he'll add to the price by getting some of his stuff in trade, autographed photo, video, whatever. if you don't know who he is your dealing with the legend, look up AMA Pro racing records B4 and after the 70's, thats the same Gary Nixon, now just a semi retired good old boy still playing with bikes.

yea He is the high bidder, but we had a misunderstanding. he wanted a photo of the bike but all I had was the one that I had gotten of the net, he thought that was the bike I was selling. but I explained that mine was in much worse shape that that one, so i am trying to get a photo to him. I found t shipping co's that I had used one to ship before but both were $525, he found one that was going to ship for $435. still trying to get the deal done.

Hopefully it can still work out, Gary strikes me as a straight shooter, but bikes are his business. gotta buy cheap and sell high. How cheap you'll have to the research.
