BSA Matchless Norton Very Big Engine Vintage England Motorcycle



In the beginning of the 20th century, British officials began shipping their bikes into India, for use during their tenure. Rarity translated into exclusivity and they struck good bargains with royalty and rich merchants. This was the period around the first World War, when airplanes and tanks were the order of the day and the motor industry was taking its first, but sizeable, leap. The English were only happy to sell off their Nortons, BSAs and Triumphs and move up to advanced models back home. Although limited to a moneyed few, India’s tryst with motorbikes had been thrown into gear.

In 1955, the Indian government ordered a few hundred Royal Enfield , to help the army and police grapple with the North East’s weathered terrain. This popularised the trend and attached to the bikes radical metaphors of austerity and fearlessness that people loved relating to. But, the concept wasn’t quite embedded in the country’s cultural conscience until the post Nehruvian era of the 60s and 70s.

Military machines rugged character
The exposed workings of military machines lent them their much-admired rugged character
The age revelled in its new found cultural modernity, arising from an unparalleled exposure to international culture through books, movies and music; this time more American than British. So, whether it was the king of rock n’ roll flashing around his metallic Harley in Vegas or a Cuban revolutionary’s historic motorcycle trek through South America, a contemporary youth culture was taking shape.

Today, the Indian auto industry tells a story of speed and mileage. With Hondas and Kawasakis springing out of the far east, each time with sharper and fiercer models, bikes are judged more on performance than feel. Still, a closely woven vintage auto industry takes pride in keeping classics roadworthy.
