    The mighty BSA was the world's largest motorcycle manufacturer buts its origin started with one of Birmingham's prolific trades, gun making

    For the First World War they made
    1,500,000 Lee Enfield guns and

    145,397 Lewis machine guns.

    For the Second World War they produced;


    1,250,000 rifles

    468,098 Browning machine guns and enough spares to make the equivalent of another 100,000 guns

    42,532 Hispano 20mm Cannons for both Spitfires and Hurricanes

    32,971 Oerlikon 20mm guns

    59,322 Besa machine guns

    68,000 anti tank rifles

    404,383 Sten guns

    750,000 anti aircraft rockets.

    The serial number of the very first SLR I was issued with, was UBA18920 .

    IIRC The UBA stands for BSA. If it had been begun UEA, as many did, it would have been an Enfield model.

    Seems like I never seen this thread somehow?
    Mine is a bit boring,it's actually my gamertag for xbox live.Comes from a japanese cartoon I liked when I was a teenager called Dragon Ball.
    Got it as my username since the heydays of the dreamcast and Phantasy Star online.
    Didn't think of changing it for something more history orientated as most people know me more as kamehouse than my real name.
    Used it in many boards since then....

    My Grand Dad also passed to me this little gem of lore: having been a Dispatch Rider ("Don R") during WW2 and ridden BSA motorcycles at times (for younger forum members, it's worth noting, the seating arrangement did Not allow of comfort, it was simple half-sprung levered support only), the acronym also means:
    Bloody Sore Arse.

    Speaking of BSA Motorcycles: Shortly after WWII my Dad bought a new bicycle. You guessed it:" A BSA" It had three rifles depicted on the emblem on the front. Some time later he bought another British made bike namely a Hercules. This bike had the name Hercules more or less entwined in the British flag. Both bikes had one gear but slightly taller than his old German made (pre-war) Junckers. All three lasted a very long time!

    I had a bicycle with the stacked rifles logo. I tried google image when posting previously, but couldn't find one. However, here are a couple.

    As an emblem of their craft they adopted the sign of three crossed rifles, which has since become world-known as the Piled Arms trademark:

    Speaking of lore revival. I was having luch at the RAC Club, Epsom, yesterday, and mentioned this thread. Most of the chaps began reminiscing about their Beezas, with the odd Triumph T'bird (Thunderbird) thrown in for good measure.
