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.
