The BSA M20 was manufactured by Birmingham Small Arms Company (BSA) at their factory in Small Heath, Birmingham. Although initially viewed as a near failure by the War Office in 1936, the M20 evolved into one of the longest serving motorcycles in the history of British military motorcycling, as well as becoming the most numerous model produced for World War II with 126,000 in active service. Many are still in use around the world today.
Originally registered on7th June 1950 this BSA M21 has been in a private collection until recently. Although used very little of late, this BSA is in need of some re-commissioning. The motorcycle is all complete and has a splendid patina to it. Benefitting from a 600cc engine this M21 is an iconic motorcycle from a very important time in British manufacturing history.
