During the early postwar years, motorcycling was as popular as it is today – then the early BSA twin in its various guises was the machine for Mr Everyman. For the best part of thirty years these very British motorcycles have entertained and worked for their riders on the roads and racetracks throughout the world. Today they have become highly desirable as collectors’ items, giving enormous pleasure to many.Back in the days when the parallel twin was a rare sight, before the Second World War, BSA had produced an excellent V-Twin. Obviously the were experienced in ‘multi’ production. Their new vertical 500 engine mounted in a Silver Star frame sought to compete with the Triumph Speed Twin. Had the war not intervened, we might have known who won the competition. Their first postwar machine was, however, less sporty and became the A7 of 1946. BSA Twins and Triples takes the A7 development story through many successful motorcycles, some with pretty glamorous names – Golden Flash, Road Rocket, Rocket Gold Star, Spitfire, Shooting Star and Firebird. ; 0.9 x 8.3 x 7.3 Inches; 191 pages
