    BSA have always been a machine tool company, for years they made auto lathes that were excellent.

    Much of the original bike factory was tooled up with their machines.
    That's a completely different company, as far as I know. I believe the motorbike BSA company had its origins as Birmingham Small Arms. Or more correctly, BOTH the motorbikes and machine tools started as that company, and they've not been connected in decades.

      They were still connected until Churchill bought them out in the 1960 and then sold on to Alfred Herbert who closes in 1983
