Cyclemotors were a popular means of cheap transport in the early 1950s, so it was only a matter of time before motorcycle manufacturer BSA, also one of the UK’s biggest bicycle makers, offered a suitable power unit. This took the form of the ‘Winged Wheel’, introduced in 1953. Powered by a 35cc two-stroke engine, the Winged Wheel fitted in place of a bicycle’s normal rear wheel, driving the hub via gears and a clutch. The fuel tank fitted in place of the rear carrier. In addition to the stand-alone engine unit, BSA also offered a complete machine in ladies or gents style, equipped with sprung front fork. This example of the BSA Winged Wheel bicycle benefits from a recently re-lined clutch and is presented in good original condition. The machine is offered with road fund licence/MoT to October 2005 and Swansea V5.
