Stock Stories: 1948-1971 BSA Bantam

With custom-bike culture exploding in recent years, the history and importance of early two-wheeled machines are often overlooked. Stock Stories tells the tales of these motorcycles. The end of World War II marked the beginning of a period of enormous automotive expansion, as well as the birth of a market hungry for cheap transport.

Martin, I like the story, photos and tech drawing.
As far as how the DKW design got to be used in the UK, DKW had to make their design available to several countries, including as part of the WWII war reparations. Meaning BSA had access to original design drawings, material specifications etc.
