Wow... Amazing that the front tire looks like a Mefo?
Aside from disk brakes... not much has changed in wheels.

BSA M21 - 591cc sidevalve.

In the early 70's a friend rebuilt the earlier, girder-forked 500 cc M20 that was languishing on his family estate some miles outside Edinburgh. We hauled it up to a second floor flat (apartment) in Edinburgh where he took several months to rebuild it in his brother's room.

When it was back together he rode it around the flat - the neighbours must have loved him. He then used it to ride around Edinburgh for a while.

I used to ride pillion on it occasionally and the rigid rear end was murder on Edinburgh's cobbled streets.

Like all sidevalves it ran as hot as hell and was a pig to start when it was hot.

IIRC M21's were discontinued during the war years so that WDM20's could be made. When production of the M21 started again after the war it wasnt until the late '40s that it gained teledraulic forks. With that being said the picture in the post would be post war no earlier than '47 or so. Something else I noticed about the pict is the brake plate is on the left and not the right side,IIRC it was originally on the right.

Telescopics are the give-away it's not a WD BSA. Not much has changed??? You need to ride one before you make a statement like that.

My old B33.

OK, post them up!

And BTW, I see in your signature line you have 7th day...
I have a group of friends I ride with where we call ourselves the SDA,
(seventh day adventurist's)

This is a tounge in cheek expression. But really we all have to work and many times the 7th day of the week is for riding our bikes.
This tag dates back to the late 80's.
