The Book of the BSA - An Owners Workshop Manual for Pre-War BSA Motorcycles
Author: Floyd Clymer
VP Book ID: 19672
Dimensions: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Description: An illustrated Owner’s Workshop Manual covering Pre-War BSA Single and Twin-Cylinder SV and OHV Motorcycles. This is a faithful reproduction of the Floyd Clymer (W.C. Haycraft) Book Of The BSA originally published in the US in 1947. Much more detailed than the owner’s handbook, this manual includes complete technical data, service and maintenance information and detailed instructions for the repair and overhaul of the major mechanical and electrical components for the majority of the pre-war BSA single and twin cylinder motorcycles.
However, as this manual was written specifically for the motorcycles constructed between 1936 through 1939 the information may not be quite as comprehensive for the earlier versions of these models. There is adequate detailed text and diagrams to assist in major refurbishing such as an engine rebuild or even a complete mechanical renovation, making it an invaluable resource for collectors and restorers of these classic BSA motorcycles. OHV and SV Models covered by this publication are: 150c.c. – X0. 250c.c. – B1, B2, B18, B20, B21, B22, C10, C11. 350c.c. – B23, B24, B25, B26, M19, R4, R5, R17, R19, R20. 500c.c. – J12, M20, M22, M23, M24, Q7, Q8, Q21, W6. 600c.c. – M10, M21. 750c.c. – Y13. 1,000c.c. – G14.
