The BSA Winged Wheel made its debut in 1953.

But within a year the writing was on the wall. New-fangled things called ‘mopeds’ were suddenly all the rage – they were faster, more stable and had gears.

Nevertheless, the Winged Wheel did have the irrefutable name of B.S.A behind it, and no doubt many were sold because of this.

The Winged Wheel was also the only ‘powerwheel’ available to the British market besides the Cyclemaster. So although cycle attachments were now being displaced by mopeds, the Winged Wheel did hang in there for a few years and quite a few were sold.

This BSA Winged Wheel is in superb restored condition.

The very attractive BSA Ladies Cycle was designed for the Winged Wheel cycle attachment, with Webbs front forks to improve its handling.

The bicycle retains its original coach lines.

And the BSA logo is prominent throughout.

These days it is not easy to find a BSA Winged Wheel like this, ie with an authentic frame in such excellent original condition as well as its engine mechanically restored.

The engine has been rebuilt, with electronic ignition.

We’ve not had time to service the engine and fire it up; it has not been run since its rebuild.
