Merry Christmas everyone, I thought i would give all you BSA Enthusiasts a little movie quiz. I don't know if any of you have heard of the movie, In the family way, made in 1966 in Burnley Lancashire which starred Hayley Mills who in this movie is as hot as fire. What a doll. can anyone name the BSA's that are in this movie clip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeRiKU7QvOU Cheers. Billy. P.S. I believe that Paul McCartney from the Beatles wrote the song that is in this movie clip. Cheers.

The first scene, where she's riding pillion: The yellow tank and filler cap, plus handlebar shape; It's a '69 Victor 441.
(I own one of those.)

I have no idea of the model of the second BSA.

Hello Irish Swede, The bike cannot be a 1969 Victor as the movie was made in 1966. Cheers. Billy.

Well, the first Victors were made in 1966, so let''s try that.

The color of the tank is rather distinctive to Victors, too bad we can't see the tank badge or decal.

I am pretty sure that you have nailed it Irish. The bike would be a round barrel 441 enduro. I think the specials were from 1968 and on and were square barrel. Cheers. Billy.

Ah. Real Britain as I remember it from my childhood. Neither Burnley nor Bolton resemble anything like this now. +1 on the 65 Lightning Rocket, I owned one in the 1970s. The Victor is most definitely a 66 model - note the metal speedo cup; 67 and onward used the rubber cup.

I'd say the 2nd bike is a 1965 UK Model Cyclone or Lightning. Not all the gold bikes were Clubmans you know...

Hi,

Absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Beesas, or any bikes, but the guy who got to snog Hayley Mills and then carry her into the bedroom was Hywel Bennett, who I see sadly passed in 2017. frown I knew him best for his role in the Shelley TV series ...

Regards,

If interested the movie is available here for 9.99

Loads of unavailable movies on this site. good quality too and DVDs are guaranteed for life apparently.

https://www.thevideobeat.com/monster-teenage-movies/family-way-1966.html

Now here is the question.... What other movies do you recommend? Firstly with Britbikes . Plenty of Hot Rod movies too. But I am also interested in great British films that show case the times and realities of life in England / America from the 50s and 60s , maybe even the 70s?

I have a few already but lets list them for those who dont.


Leather Boys
Up the Junction
Some People
Dragstrip Riot
Untamed Youth
To Sir with Love
The Damned
PSYCHOMANIA 1973 (whether you think its a good movie or not , it has the most brit bike scenes of any movie I've watched)

Are a few that I have

Do not forget the 1968 flick "IF", with Malcolm Mcdowell. He swipes a beesa from a showroom full.

My italian is a little rusty, but I think the waitress said "I mock your poor choice of motorcycle".
And once again, the debate on the virtues of British vs. Italian motorcycles takes an ugly turn.
