BVM Motorcycles


Manufactured by Jan Boonen and Jaak Vanvelthoven of Lommel, 1972-1974
Using a modified Husqvarna 405cc engine and built by Sprite in Britain, the off-road motorcycles were considerably cheaper than the better known marques. Production ceased in 1974 when American Eagle, the US importers of Sprite machines, collapsed owing Sprite a considerable amount of money.
Around 200 examples of the BVM were built.
