Below is a list of BSA M24 engines, frames 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 website.
Some of the bikes listed are replicas which may have had engine and/or frame numbers restamped with M24 numbers.
Those engines marked with a * are genuine bikes in the original frame in which it left the BSA factory.
There are a total of 62 original bikes listed here up to May 2020, 24 x JM24, & 38 x KM24.
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.
