BSA BantamBSA Bantam by Owen Wright The diminutive BSA Bantam is one of the icons of British motoring in the 20th century. It was not fast, glamorous or particularly well-built; but it was cheap, easy to ride and reasonably reliable. It was an introduction to motoring for 1000s of men and women in the 1950s and 60s and it still holds an important place in the memory of many. This book charts the huge success of the little bike from Birmingham that started its life in pre-war Germany and went on to conquer the world. It includes a full history of the BSA Bantam, special panels on important features and people, and full specifications for major models.
