Below is a list of BSA M24 engines and complete bikes still in
existence, of which I am aware.
The list is almost certainly not complete, so if you own one or
know of one not on this list, please Email or phone details,
including engine & frame numbers, where the bike is located,
and if possible a photograph. I will add details of the bike and
the country in which it is located, but no personal details of
owners will appear on the site.
Those engines marked with a * are in the original frame in
which it left the BSA factory.
I have access to the original BSA despatch records for 1938
and 1939, so please get in touch if you want to know more about
any surviving M24.
