Pre war single - What is it?

(1/1)

JulianS:
From the family album a 1930s BSA with my Great Uncle John Rendell at the front.

 Dont know when taken but does the flag say "Pirates"

But what is the bike? I am not sure.

Maybe a 1936 B18 250 with the large headlamp? Or a 1935 B35-2 ?

What do you think?

TTJOHN:
Julian. You could be correct with the bike but I think the photo was taken somewhere around 1948-50 judging by the dress, the pirates were a speedway team initially formed at Poole in 1948 and when you think of it, we all rode old bikes then, anyone who had a new bike must have been quite well off. HTH.

Arthur:
It looks like a B18 rather than a B35-2 going by the shape of the casting for the electrical generator behind the cylinder.

JulianS:
Thanks TTJOHN and Arthur.

Poole Pirates makes sense as he lived in Somerset or Dorset.
