A clever ad by Honda. Imagine what the BSA equivalent would be like. *eek*

Great ad Musky. I reckon the BSA equivalent would freeze at the anti wet sumping ball valve.............................
The next shot would be a puddle of oil on the workshop floor *smile*.

Well I reckon if the video technology had been available (doubtful as they'd just invented TV) BSA could have matched Honda in as much as they were very similar in variety of product range and global standing so could have made a similar ad (Bantam morphs into rifle morphs into Daimler morphs into Speedtwin morphs into ......................)

Not quite the same in black and white tho
