Sometimes living under the shadow of the flashier, high profile Triumph Twins, the equivalent BSAs were just as numerous, and were exported to the USA and all over the world.
BSA was often seen as a less glamorous marque than Triumph or Norton, associated more with commuting and sidecars than coffee bar cowboys, but that doesn't detract from its collectibility today, as the bikes have become highly usable, enjoyable classics.
This book is a practical guide to buying one of these bikes and covers the complete range, from the very first 1946 500cc A7 to the final 1973 650cc A65s.
Photos and a unique scoring system smoothly guide you through the buying process without making expensive mistakes.
Features 100 colour photos, useful appendices and expert advice mean that this book could save you thousands!
Other features include ownership advice, the 10 minute and 30 minute evaluation checklists, how to check the bikes' authenticity, which models are best, the implications of restoration, running cost details, auction guide, how to get the paperwork right, useful contacts and more.
