BSA’s ‘C’ range of lightweights was first introduced in 1938. Its first exemplar was the C10, a sidevalve single with coil ignition and three-speed hand-change gearbox. A de luxe version with foot-change gearbox joined the range in 1939, as did the overhead-valve C11. The original girder front fork was replaced by a telescopic unit in mid-1946 and part way through 1949 the C10 gained an alloy cylinder head. From 1954 onwards the pair continued as the updated C10L/C11G, with alternator electrics, plunger rear suspension and four-speed gearbox, eventually bowing out in 1957. This particular C11 was last taxed to 31st March 1983 and is offered with old-style Swansea V5 recording last change of keeper in March 1982.
