For many years the Birmingham Small Arms Company was Britain’s biggest motorcycle manufacturer and after the Second World War it was the largest in the world, with a reputation for oil-tightness and reliability. The 'C' range of lightweight single cylinder motorcycles was introduced in 1938, with the first of the series being the side valve C10. The models played an important role in WW2, with BSA’s 1940 stock requisitioned for military use.

This example has resided on the Channel Islands since 1998, when it was purchased by the current custodian’s father. Ownership passed to the vendor in 2010, but due to lack of time and therefore use, he has decided to part with the BSA. We understand that the machine is very original, with aged patina. It will require servicing and recommissioning prior to returning to the road, but should be an achievable and no doubt very rewarding purchase for an enthusiast.

The history file contains the original instruction book, photographs, sundry papers, the V5 document and the States of Jersey VRD, where the motorcycle is currently registered.
