BSA Bushman D14/4

I am from South Africa, and inherit this BSA Bushman from what I can make out. It was bought here in the 1960's by my dad in law and he only used it for 3000miles, since then it was standing in the garage most of it's life.

Bantam Sports clothes

If you ever go to a classic meeting. Try to dress to fit the bike....
A little gathering of pic's to inspire

It's British and well engineered

Something different, it's British and well engineered. Sorry but it only shows the bike from the waistline, but it conveys the engineering of this bike. It was built by the Winwood brothers who worked in the aerospace industry. This actual bike was ridden by Ross Winwood in the 1970 SSDT. It has an aluminium plate frame, screwed/bolted together in places and a billet turned headstock. 175cc BSA Bantam power plant with aluminium billet triple clamps (yolks) and I think either MP or REH front forks.
