BSA

Once the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer, BSA built a reputation for offering a wide range of machines which were well engineered and good value but were rarely at the forefront of design and development. Highlights of the range include the DBD34 Gold Star, a 500cc single which saw great success in racing as well as being a sought after road bike, and the much loved BSA Bantam, a favourite of learners, commuters and delivery riders all over the world.

 

As with the rest of the British motorcycle industry, BSA struggled when faced with the onslaught of the Japanese manufacturers of the 1960’s and after becoming part of the NVT group, the final motorcycles sporting the BSA name were produced in 1973. If you are looking for a classic British bike to ride or restore, the BSA marque still has a strong and enthusiastic following.
