Interesting that they used the same name as The Birmingham Small Arms Company (BSA) so long after that company's demise. I wonder why.

I'm going to christen my new boat "Titanic".

It's because they like us and want to give us the Return of a Legend!
(or something like that )

Here's the thing. The "legend" is in your hands. You can never count on any company reproducing a "legend". The legend IS and only you can maintain that legend.

What's your legend? A side valve? Knuckel? Pan? Old Yamahooie with a broken part that doesn't exist today?

Your job Mr. _____, if you care to accept it is to keep that legend alive. This message will self destruct at some point, so get to work...

Oh and I will deny any knowledge of your existence too.

Wellm that explains it.

My mates are always telling me I'm a Legend in my own underpants.
