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.

The BSA range of unit construction singles was in production for fifteen years, and spanned the time of BSA's greatest success, to the eventual failure of the company. In that time, the range provided BSA with their basic 'bread and butter' machines, gave thousands of learners an introduction to motorcycling, provided BSA with many national and world championship wins in the off road arena, mobilized the British Army and gave trail riders the world over the means to further their hobby. This illustrated history of the BSA unit singles runs from the 250cc ohv single cylinder C15 Star of 1958 to the B50 of 1971 and includes all the Triumph-badge derivatives. Matthew Vale provides not only the history but much practical advice relating to the purchase, restoration and maintenance of these machines.
