Before the rise of the two-stroke in 1966, motocross racers utilized 500cc single-cylinder, four-strokes—typically they were British, but Sweden contributed with four-stroke Monarks, Litos and Husqvarnas. The most common bike for a 500cc Grand Prix rider to choose, was a BSA (Birmingham Small Arms).
