Triumph Tiger Cub T20 and BSA Bantam parts, garbage or gold?

I was given a bunch of old British parts. Engine parts mostly and some gas tanks. I've identified some of it as Triumph Tiger Cub T-20 and BSA Bantam. I have no idea what any of its or if any is of value(?). Looking for folks who might be able to help identify and assess, then need to find new home(s). Will post pictures after I catch my breath from moving this stuff.

Again, this is NOT a "for sale" ad... although I'd entertain inquires. For now I'm just looking for help in knowing what this stuff is and if it has any value or not. I have no clue, so $0.10/lb at the scrap yard is tempting.

I have a friend who has a Cub. They're not hugely valuable, but there is a market. Ebay fodder is probably your best bet.
Call Chris Quinn about the BSA. He's still connected to that scene.
If anyone in thier 30's or younger attempts to buy anything from you, smash it and set it on fire. The world doesn't need any young hipsters hoarding or building Brit stuff. Let them keep ruining Harleys and Hondas.

Thanks Fish. I hadn't thought of Chris. I'll give him a call.

if the numbers on that license plate are clear someone wants it.

too bad allen millyard isn't closer, he'd probably put all those engine bits together into one unit and make a w6 BSA that looks like a factory bike

I just put an ad on CL and looks like the vultures are coming out of hiding. I might even get a few $100 for the lot

I'll try to set aside the license plate
