Who made carburetors for vintage British motorcycles?

Vintage British motorcycles commonly used Amal carburetors, which were produced in the UK. Amal carburetors were fitted as standard equipment on many British motorcycle brands, including Triumph, BSA, and Norton, from the 1920s to the 1960s. The Amal concentric carburetor was introduced in the mid-1960s and became the standard carburetor on most British motorcycles until the industry declined in the 1970s. Amal carburetors were renowned for their simplicity and reliability, and were easy to maintain and tune. The company also offered a wide range of tuning parts and accessories, making it popular among motorcycle enthusiasts looking to upgrade their bikes' performance.

When did Amal make carburetors?

Amal carburetors were produced in the UK by a company called Amalgamated Carburetors Limited, which was founded in 1927. They quickly became the standard carburetor on many British motorcycle brands, including Triumph, BSA, and Norton. Amal carburetors were known for their simplicity, reliability, and easy maintenance, making them popular among motorcycle enthusiasts. The company continued to innovate and improve their carburetors, introducing the popular concentric carburetor in the 1960s. However, the decline of the British motorcycle industry in the 1970s led to a decline in demand for Amal carburetors, and the company eventually went out of business in the early 1990s.
