A 1946 BSA M20, registration number OFF 736, silver. The BSA M20 saw its debut in 1937. The large side valve engine 496cc M20 and 596cc M21 were both dependable high torque sloggers suited to sidecar use and during the WWII period many a despatch rider used a M20 as their mount. Available initially with a rigid frame, girder forks and a hand change three speed gearbox, they went through various upgrades until production ceased in 1955. This particular M20 is a rigid frame, girder fork example with foot change gearbox which has been in the current ownership for over 20 years. Presented in good condition the M20 has been well maintained over that time, including an engine overhaul (1998), new front and rear brake shoes, oil filter spin off conversion and Mag/Dynamo overhaul (2008); complete strip down repainted frame, rewire with thin wall cable, new headlamp unit, rebuilt wheels with new spokes, kick start bush/pawl etc. (2009) and a new battery (2017). The oil, filter and spark plug are changed every year on 29th May (vendor's birthday) along with all his other bikes. Since the engine overhaul and strip down the BSA has only covered a few thousand miles. The M20 will be offered for auction with a history file with receipts, MOTs and details of a speedometer/odometer overhaul in 2000 when the odometer was set at 0. V5C, MOT and tax exempt
£450-550 + 13.2% buyer's premium, with minimum buyer's premium of £96 (including 20% VAT)
