The British Two Stroke Club Ltd

Welcome to the showcase of the British Two-Stroke Club.  This website is not intended to be a place for technical information instead it shows the activities that the club is involved in


The British Two Stroke Club ay

The BTSC is a national Club that has many active regional sections along with members from overseas such as France, Australia and other far flung places. We are a member Club of the Federation of British Historic Vehicles Clubs (FBHVC).

We are unusual as our club does not relate to one particular make or model of motorcycle but it concerns a particular type of power unit - the two stroke engine, whether it was manufactured in  Britain or elsewhere in the world.

The club is a Limited Company and the general affairs are managed by a Committee.

The committee members are elected each year at the Annual General Meeting. This is held as part of the Annual Rally which takes place at different venues across the country and is usually held in early July.

The aim of the club is to provide a means for like minded members to make new friends and meet fellow enthusiasts who all have the same interests and enjoy restoring, riding and exhibiting their two stroke motorcycles.
