The new Icon 1000 Collection

BSA B31 hardtail

Jim Clark's BSA B31 hardtail custom
The Second World War had barely finished when the Birmingham Small Arms Company introduced the iconic B31. A 350 cc four-stroke thumper propelled the bike to a top speed of around 70 mph, and although it was based on a pre-war design, the B31 remained in production until 1959. This hardtail custom is featured on the website of Speer Performance, a vintage motorcycle specialist based in Melbourne, Australia. Click here for more wonderful images from the mysterious Jim Atanasovski, including a Suzuki T500 post classic racer and 1948 Bedford truck on the salt flats.
