If you're thinking of buying a new one you could use one of the combo British Standard/Whitworth tool kits, or just a combo of SAE/Metrics. An old BSA only uses about 5 different sizes on the whole bike.

I have a set of BA/Whitworth spanners somewhere.

So to answer your question, they are neither metric nor SAE. They are British Standard or Whitworth, depending on the age of the machine.

Thanx for the information all!

I was wondering because I found some pictures of an old 441 Victor I had after I graduated from high school.

Beat the hell out of that poor thing.
