Corrected entry: Arthur's motorbike is a BSA registration number JVB54 which also appears in "Dad's Army" as air raid warden Hodges' motorbike even though it is a 1950's model.

Correction: Whilst the bike was first registered in 1951, it is a 1945 BSA M21. These bikes started life in 1939 and were used by the army in great numbers (126,000). After the war the WD versions were sold off and repainted in civvy colours. The fact that it has no rear suspension and girder front forks are the clues.
