Description

My father in law has decided to sell his 1979 Bimota SB3
The SB3 has always been a very rare bike: just 402 were built worldwide.
This one is Number 9 (frame number 0009) and was the first SB3 in the UK.
Its history & provenance is fully documented - it's a very special bike. with just 4 owners from new; two of those from the same family (Bought new. sold to son-in-law. then sold on to its third owner. then repurchased by the original owner before being bought by my father in law).
It comes with the original bill of sale (see photos) and a letter to the DVLA - when it was returned to its original number plate after having had a private plate - which describes its history very clearly. A photo of this letter also attached.
It has covered just 6. 32 miles from new. with a documented change of speedo under warranty at the first service. hence only 5. 45 miles showing on the clock today.
This very bike was the one displayed at the Earls Court bike show in 1979. and then road-tested by Motorcycle News. (We have a copy of the issue of MCN in which it was reviewed - see pictures)
This SB3 was already in lovely original condition when my father-in-law bought it in 5 years ago. but he still carefully stripped it down and treated it to a full cosmetic restoration - having the frame and fairing professionally resprayed. and the Marchesini wheels re-painted in the original gold.
It has always been garaged. and is in outstanding original condition as you can see from the photos. There are a few marks on it here and there. so am not going to describe it as being in concours condition. but it's pretty close!
I could go on an on about this bike. but no doubt if you're looking at this advert. you'll already be aware of what it is. and the fact that its likely to be many years before another SB3 comes up for sale.
A truly unique opportunity to own a rare piece of superbike history.
Viewing can be arranged in Colchester. Essex.
Collection only. Payment by BACS or cash on collection.
Feel free to call 01206 728523 - very happy to answer any questions.
