buildings in Small Heath (see photo). BSA also had factories in other cities, including Redditch and the BSA and Royal Enfield factory soccer teams were the protagonists of a strong rivalry in the Redditch league. Another connection with Royal Enfield came when one of the first directors of the company, Albert Eadie, left Royal Enfield in 1907 and became a director of BSA.
The reason I thought I would write in this blog about BSA is that there is a campaign to save what remains of the Small Heath factory. Enfield fans are lucky that some portions of the previously vast factory in Redditch are still there to admire. Many other British manufacturers were not so lucky. In particular the original Triumph factory is gone. Here is a list of surviving motorcycle buildings in Birmingham.
