BSA Hornet - Steve McQueen BSA Hornet Road Test

Steve McQueen BSA Hornet Road Test

Actor Steve McQueen tested the BSA Hornet and described it as "a keen bike - but I found it awfully heavy". McQueen suggested that a lot more weight would have to be stripped off to make the bike competitive. He also noted that the Hornet also had a tendency to want to go its own way but had what he called a 'good-functioning' power train. He also suggested that if the front forks were raked on a more forward angle the BSA would have "a more stable ride in the rough and would be generally a smoother performer".

    This, then, is the test we must set for ourselves; not to march alone but to march in such a way that others will wish to join us.
