Have we all seen this?

Mainly on BSA and SmallHeath but Triumph and Norton get big mentions and some archive footage of Tony Benn at the BSA discussing the co-op.

Hurry, it will be gone by friday...

Did we learn anything about short-sighted economics?
We will.

Thanks for posting that Andy. Do you know that you can download it by clicking the download button then right click the file name and select "download linked file".

Cool thing to be able to watch anytime. Even though we all know the terrible ending. Sad to see the machinery being sold off and the protestors trying to hang onto a sunken ship.

Any fellow Brummies out there remember riding around the test track next door to BSA factory?
I took the RAC/ACU course there in 1964.

I was on holiday in England around the time of the auction.
Closest we got to Birmingham was the motorway. The guide said, "Over there is Birmingham, industrial area, not much to see there."
Sadly, I didn't care, as I had yet to own Brit iron at that time.
