The Flash in Film Reg 616 AGF
« on: 12.04. 2011 20:11 »
Folks,

I was watching The League of Gentlemen (1960) yesterday on Film 4. About 1 1/2hr in there is a pre unit A10 (I think) used by the bank robbers. Does anyone know if the bike is still around - has anyone got it?

Found it on Youtube:

First appears at 8:12 minutes in

I think there are a few BSA's in the show heartbeat as well.  I've not watched it though to confirm.

If its on a v5 you can do a search on the DVLA database for it.
Often these numbers end up being transferred to poncey cars though, so the bike might still exist and you'd never know.
Cheers,
