Murray Barnard's writeup on the BSA M21 series bikes: " The M21 tested is a product of the immediate post-war motorcycling industry in that it shares the running gear of the war model WM20 despite being a claimed 1947 model. The pre-war appearance is the result of most motorcycle factories producing interim civilian models based on pre-war/war model designs before releasing their new post-war range in late 1947 and 1948.First though, a history lesson and then we ride the bike. Pleasure must accompany pain, although I'm not sure which process is the most painful. Again I'll assume that the reader is unfamiliar with the model, please bear with me all of you BSA side-valve fanatics.The M21 initially had a bore and stroke of 85mm x 105mm for a swept volume of 595cc. In 1938 it was brought into line with the M20 with a bore of 82mm and a 112mm stroke giving 591cc. A similar bore as the M20 turned the M21 into a long stroke version of the 500 and meant the factory could use common engine parts. The M21 still used heavier flywheels though, to provide the low rev pulling power needed for sidecar work.
