Description

SUNBEAM S8 1950 - 500cc inline parallel twin with shaft drive

 

This auction is for an extremely tidy bike which is ready to ride. no work required. No MOT required due to age and is taxed until June 2014.

 

The bike was restored by previous owner 12 years ago and sat in an air-conditioned barn for 10 years.   Since owning the bike the last 2 years it has been on many VMCC runs and did a full week in the VMCC Manx Rally last year with no issues and turned many heads because it is such as good example of a very unusual bike.

 

This is an extremely clean bike. well maintained and serviced. Plenty of compression and starts easily after only a few kicks. the engine ticks over perfectly and rides lovely on the road.

 

The paint work is extremely good as is all the chrome. plenty of stainless nuts. bolts and other parts added to replace steel.

 

Although I've tried to keep this bike as original as possible a few modifications have been made as I believe it makes for a better and safer bike such as clutch lightening which makes it super light. top end cam-shaft engine breather both from Stewarts engineering. rear rack and discrete indicators which can easily be removed.

 

There are loads of invoices. some sales literature. service manual (Stewarts Engineering).

 

No signs of rust at all. however there is a slight crack in the paint on the rear mudguard and a small area of paint which has rubbed off slightly but has been sorted and on longer rubs.

 

The reason for the sale is to free up garage space.   Delivery can be arranged for an additional fee. Payment on collection.

 

If you have a questions about the bike please contact me but ONLY if you have a serious interest or question. please no time wasters or tyre kickers.
