Text continues “Do your bit by keeping fit. Ride a BSA Bicycle.” Comment from the BSA Museum “BSA [The British Small Arms & Metal Company Ltd] was formed in 1861 and the company was finally sold in 1957 to Tube Investments. They were there at the beginning of bicycle production, and played a major part in their manufacture when Great Britain was the world’s leading producer of bicycles, motorcycles and cars.

BSA bicycles are still made in India. BSA started out as gun makers and, through government contracts, helped defend the British Empire through the Boer War and two world wars.”
