1958 BSA DBD34 Gold Star Posted by the Big Dog Garage Team on June 22, 2009 9:51 PM Founded in 1861 by 14 gunsmiths, the Birmingham Small Arms Company or BSA expanded their weapons manufacture into bicycle production after the Crimean War, and by 1903 had created an experimental motorcycle. With the 1910 purchase of the Daimler Company, BSA branched into car manufacture, and was poised for maximum growth during World War One. Originally, BSA motorcycles were sold as a reliable alternative to the automobile, targeted to the average commuter. Popular with fleet buyers, the company would claim one in four is a BSA in its advertising. After a few seasons of embarrassing failures on the race circuit, ...

Everett Brashear- American Racing Legend

Blind Ambition: Everett Brashear, American Racing Legend Winner of 15 AMA nationals on Harley-Davidson and BSA flat-trackers. Photographer. Everett Brashear Archives If you ask Everett Brashear, crashing was more of a “when” than an “if.” He “finally got it” at a half-mile track in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1954. “I fell off in practice,” recalled Brashear, “and another guy ran right over the top of me. He hit me in the side of the head and severed the optic nerve, blinding me in the left eye. I was in the hospital for about a month and a half. I’d pretty much done it; my arm, leg, everything was busted up.” Born in 1927, Brashear didn’t grow up riding motorcycles. His ...

Made a 250cc sidevalve sold as Indian brave, but was poorly designed and commercially unsuccessful. George Brough’s machines were advertised as the Rolls Royce of motorcycles.

Carbodies Carbodies is a British company based in Holyhead Road, Coventry, that started as a coachbuilder but is now best known for its Taxicab production business. The company was founded in 1919 when Robert Jones bought the vehicle body making business from Gooderham.

After the war Carbodies got a major contract from the Austin Motor Company to ...

BSA Rocket Gold Star-BSA

BSA is back with its first new roadster for a quarter of a century and the 500cc Gold SR is such an authentic retro-bike that you even have to kickstart it! With its clip-ons, rearsets and big polished aluminium petrol tank, the Gold SR is a dead ringer for the mighty Gold Star, BSA’s most famous model of the Fifties. But this time there’s a big difference the new British single is powered by Yamaha of Japan. Its engine is the 499cc aircooled single from Yamaha’s SR500, which was launched back in 1978 and almost qualifies as a classic itself. Although the simple single was dropped by Yamaha UK years ago, production continued for some markets. When Southampton-based BSA needed ...

1945 BSA B31. Rare Early Model The BSA & Military Bicycle Museum

1945 BSA B31. Rare Early Model 1945 BSA B31. Rare Early Model (Now sold) Though this is essentially a bicycle website, this machine is a rare 1945 BSA and was my daily rider in 2010. A few pages about BSA’s motorcycle production provides additional background to the company’s wartime history. What I like about this first model is that it’s very different from other B31′s. It’s more lightweight than subsequent models, and sits lower to the ground. The speedo is in the tank. It also has some special wartime features such as different levers and front forks without a drain plug. The BSA B31 was designed before the end of WW2 and introduced as soon as the war finished, so it’s ...

Collectable: Triumph X75 Hurricane-News & Reviews-Motorcycle Trader

20 Aug 2013 | The Triumph X75 Hurricane is now one of the world’s most sought-after triples says Ian Falloon Words: Ian Falloon It started as an American skunkworks project and became the world’s first factory custom and, as flawed as it might be, the X75 Hurricane is now one of the world’s most sought-after triples. Secret Service The ‘factory custom’ is taken for granted as an integral part of today’s mainstream motorcycling. Harley-Davidson has almost made it an art form and nearly all other manufacturers have followed suit. But it was BSA that pioneered this now-successful formula, with Craig Vetter’s strikingly styled X75 Hurricane of 1973. Not only was the X75 the world’s ...
