BSA Fittings Adverts

BSA Fittings Adverts: New Zealand & Australia

It is natural for a cannibal to love his fellow man and woman, not forgetting the little ones of tender years. Turner & Co are not cannibals – they are not a bit greedy even; but they want to do everyone a good turn by selling them one of their roadster machines. These bicycles cannot be beaten for quality or value. They are made to order on the spot of BSA fittings throughout.
