They never attracted quite the plaudits heaped on their Triumph equivalents, but they were robust, popular machines, beloved of tourers, racers and off-roaders alike. The model range covered every angle, from staid tourer, through off-road racers through to true-road burners.

The BSA Unit Twin range was launched in the early 1960s, and remained in production until the demise of BSA in 1973. Powered by a V-twin engine of 500 and 650cc, they were, until the arrival of the three- cylinder Rocket, BSA's top-of-the-range machines. The author has written the first full-length book to deal with the BSA A50 and A65 Unit-twin range.

The BSA unit twins were a range of unit construction twin-cylinder motorcycles made by the Birmingham Small Arms Company (BSA) and aimed at the US market. A range of 500 cc (31 cu in), 650 cc (40 cu in) and 750 cc (46 cu in) twins were produced between 1962 and 1972, but they were really developments of the older pre-unit A7/A10 model range with less weight. The engines had a reputation for vibration, but acceleration was good for the time, to a top speed of 100 miles per hour (160 km/h).

The unit was further developed by factory engineer Matt Write for 1939: he added watercooling, and with a new Zoller supercharger the unit pumped out an impressive 55bhp at 7,200rpm – a very respectable 110bhp per litre. At that year’s TT the bike featured a new rear-sprung frame and finished eleventh and thirteenth, but at the Ulster Grand Prix it became the first to lap the Northern Ireland course at over 100mph (160km/h), and was leading the race when the forks broke, causing it to retire.

The BSA 500 and 650cc Unit Twins were the top-of-the-range models for BSA from the early 1960s through to the Rocket 3 of 1969. The model range covered every angle, from staid tourer, through off-road racers through to true-road burners. This book has two parts - the first describes the design and development of the range from its inception in 1962 to the final demise of BSA in 1973, detailing the various models produced each year. The second part of the book looks at the practicalities of restoring and running the model, through documenting both owners' experiences and a full restoration of a typical bike. The illustrated record of the restoration of a 1965 Lightning identifies the pitfalls that will confront the restorer and the practical modifications that can be made to provide a reliable mount for today's traffic conditions.

Unfortunately not the book it should have been. More of the same tired material rehashed from other books. There is little of real use in this book for a diehard A65 fan and someone who knows these bikes in detail. Maybe the book is not for that person, but then who would buy it? The A65s do not have the charm of the Bonnies and there must be a very limited market. There are some nice pictures. Not enough in colour and some a little fuzzy. There are some rebuild stories, but none provide new insight and tips. Such as, how do you make it easy to remove the footrests on a OIF A65? Or removing the head of an OIF A65, or removing and installing the plain bearing.

I am keeping mine, but only beuase I can't be bother to send it back and I like to have everything on A65s.

As both a bibliophile and BSA collector, I found this book to be a great addition to my library. The book has some great pictures of original BSA motorcycles and is priceless to have for their restorations.

Good manual for the BSA Singles.

Was the perfect Christmas gift for a co-worker who has an early-70s BSA. He learned a lot about the history of his bike and the brand.

I bought this book on the recomendation of an a friend who lent me his copy while we were working on rewiring my A65, after flicking through it I wanted a copy of it for my self.
There is a lot of interesting detail and photo's, it is well written and it contains reference information.
I am very happy this book.
