    At the end of the nineteen twenties the Motorcycle Industry grew immensely quick, in Britain. Resulting from this, a price competition established between the motorcycle manufacturers. At this time the cheaper Triumph Model P and the BSA model S26, were competing. You were able to choose between 15 solo models and 11 combinations. The solo machines ranged from a 249 cc side valve single to the  986 cc  “Colonial” V-twin model. The 493cc was the most noted model and listed at about 45 pounds. This motorcycle is equipped with a BSA three-speed gearbox and with acetylene lighting.

    This 1926 Model S26 is an older restoration and drives very well.
    The whole bike has an wonderful patina.
