I am helping a widow whose husband was a collector of things. She opened a shed door and up against the back wall, semi-buried was a motorcycle. Or part of one anyway. I have owned a few bikes over the years so I immediately went to take a look. As you can see it is only partially there. I knew right away it was British with Lucas Electrics and a Smith Speedometer (no Tach) I am pretty sure it is an Oil-In-Frame Triumph. beyond that I have no clue. It is a single cylinder with the exhaust on the right (starboard) side, spark plug on the left. Some type of scrambler? Additional detail not in the pictures, some of the head bolts and other fasteners are safety wired. Any help is appreciated. Thank you,

Thank you very much. I did some research on BSAs and came up with the oil in frame B50 from the early 1970s.
