Re: Bsa m20/21

Hi Mark, thanks, i found the forum through a dutch website so assumed there were a large number of members from the Netherlands here(probably wrongly in hindsight based on it being in english).

My grandfather died before i was born so i don't have many details except this photo, taken during his time serving his dutch national service

Picture is here (i can't get it to upload to the forum suggested website) -

Re: Bsa m20/21

Ok, it's a just postwar picture, the headlamp rim, is a punched out blackoutmask, the Dutch did this a lot just after the war, as I have several of them.

LSK stands for? Schiet Kamp, sorry, I forgot, but I will remember. But the bike was used there, these numbers are not listed anywhere, but maybe Bastiaan knows more?

ISK was Infanterie Schiet Kamp, that was and is still located on the "Harskamp"
ASK was Artillerie Schiet Kamp, that was and is still located in "T'Harde"

Ok, I found it, it just means "Lucht Strijd Krachten" so Airforce in English, I found a picture, of 1950's BSA's, and some Volkswagens, I remember these, as I could have bought a couple 25 years ago, they were apple green!



Cheers,

Lex

Re: Bsa m20/21

Found some more pictures in the Dutch archives, had not seen these before! you can see, the higher the LSK number, the newer the bike.




They used Nortons with sidecar too!






A BSA and a Hardley.

Hope this helps,

Re: Bsa m20/21

Amazing information, thank you so much. I assume there's no way to see if it's still around?
