The BSA Bantam, a 2 stroke motorbike commonly known as the chicken chaser was produced by the Birmingham Small Arms Company (BSA) from 1948 to 1971.

Gasoline Gypsy (or the English title of A Ride in the Sun) is a marvelous account of Peggy Iris Thomas’s 14500 mile, 18 month journey through Canada, the USA and Mexico on her 123cc, rigid framed, two-stroke, BSA Bantam model D1 motorcycle, accompanied by her Airedale terrier dog, Matelot, who travelled in a large box on the luggage carrier.
