After BSA’s competition division dissolved, Clews Competition Machines (CCM) was founded by Alan Clews in 1971. Clews bought all the BSA works parts and created his own MX bikes, developing his own parts as he started running out of BSA units. Here’s one of his more popular models, powered by a 500cc BSA engine.
These were seriously pricey bikes – nearly double the MSRP of any other European brand at the time. Alan was able to justify these prices as he was one of the few builders that could put out 4-strokes that competed with 2-strokes, and CCM achieved several top five finishes in the 500cc MX world championship in the 70s.
This example is claimed to be in race ready condition with rebuilt Works shocks, Rex Caunt electronic ignition, a new top end, new Amal carb, and more. This bike weighs just 224 pounds with a half tank of gas. The seller wanted to run this in vintage races but only got about two practice laps before he was injured (presumably on an other bike).
