FACT FILE

 

• "BSA" stands for "Birmingham Small Arms".

 

• BSA was founded in 1861 in the Gun Quarter, Birmingham, England by fourteen gunsmiths of the Birmingham Small Arms Trade Association, who had together supplied arms to the British government during the Crimean War.

• The company branched out as the gun trade declined. In the 1870's, they manufactured the Otto Dicycle (see picture right), then in the 1880's, the company began to manufacture bicycles, and in 1903, the company’s first experimental motorcycle was constructed.

• BSA remains a well-recognised brand throughout the world.

 

• At its peak, BSA was the largest motorcycle producer in the world.

THE COMMITTEE

Meet our Club President, Mal Mackay!

 

Mal is Liverpool-born, and arrived in Australia at the age of 3.

 

"My dad had an early A7 and then an A10. My first BSA was a push bike … then a 1950 M21… Bantams … I raced Jawa at Rowley Park Speedway and later took off to ride speedway in the UK in 1969, riding for Halifax and then Workington. From 1970 to 1977 back in Australia racing at Rowley Park.

 

Two broken legs, numerous injuries and a latter day classic meeting at Murray Bridge, coming off and being run over. Ouch!

 

From that time on, I have rekindled my early passion for BSA’s and now have the pleasure of being president of a great mob of fellow enthusiasts".
