Heanes was a motorcycle produced from 1971 to 1973 by Ken Heanes.

Heanes was a successful rider in off-road scrambles and the ISDT (Internation Six Days Trial). He made an arrangement with BSA and Eric Cheney to combine the unit single engine from one and the frame kit from the other. The result of this combination was the Heanes BSA Thumper which was a good off-road machine.
