I’ll post a couple of pictures as soon as I can get hold of a copier and learn to download the images…..meanwhile you may have seen the pictures of the bike a while back on the front page of Daily Mail weekend TV supplement of the TV chef Tony Martin :?:

My mistake, it is the chef James Martin, and the DM Weekend in question is 10 December 2016.

As far as I remember, BSA's only two-strokes were the 150cc Bantam (used by Post Office telegram deliverers) and a smaller 70cc bike. 250 and bigger were all 4-strokes.

The "BSA C10L" link I posted should have given you a strong clue as the C10 is a side valve 4-stroke. The C11 and C12 being OHV are noticeably different to the C10.

The Bantam started life as a 125cc and eventually grew into a 175cc.

That was the BSA Dandy. :wink:

.....And the 175cc version of the (BSA) Sunbeam Scooter.
