Description Description
Sometimes living under the shadow of the flashier, high profile Triumph twins, the equivalent BSA's were just as numerous, exported to the USA and all over the world.  BSA was often seen as a less glamorous marque than Triumph or Norton, more associated with commuting and sidecars rather than coffee bar cowboys. But that doesn't detract from its collectibility today. The bikes built are highly useable, enjoyable classics. Unlike the many marque histories, this book is a practical guide to buying one of these bikes today. It covers the complete range, from the very first 1946 500cc A7 to the final 1973 650cc A65's. Chapters include what to look for (10min and 30min evaluations); spares prices; guides to auctions and paperwork; lists of useful contacts in the BSA community; and just as important, consideration of whether it's the right bike for you. One hundred color photos, useful appendices and expert advice mean this book could save you 1000’s.
