Your article on the BSA M20 brought back memories of a time long ago
M20 memories

When much younger and working in a kibbutz in Northern Israel, I bought an ex-WD M20 (it still had some green paint on the engine, very hard to remove!), it was fitted with a locally made sidecar made in Haiffa in 1963.

I had a lot of fun riding it and brought it back home to Switzerland.

Some years later, intending to restore it, I paid a visit to Russell Motors and when told of my story, they said that for a while they had two Israeli guys spotting many of them. Indeed BSA M20s seemed to be plentiful, and over there they were known as BSA 42.

The BSA has been sold and another motorcycle replaced it, but the pleasure it gave me is still present in my mind. Great magazine, keep it up this way, you’re on the right track.
