I am listing this for a friend of mine. Barry.
This is a 1935 model 8 Sunbeam 350 in racing trim. Its not registered. but was MOT. last year on the frame number. so I asume that was towards getting it registered. The bike is in mint condition and is professionally painted and polished. The bike is a decent spec with a lucas racing mag and a Amal TT carb fitted. There are notes in the file regarding the work carried out. and it shows that around £3500 was spent on the rebuild in parts chroming and painting and 252 hours were recorded. so god knows what the labour charge was. From this I take it that a lot of work was farmed out. From the notes the mag was overhauled and I can attest to the fact that it has a decent spark. The information shows that there was new exhausts and wheels rebuilt. new tyres etc etc. When I tried it tody. the kickstart rachet slipped. so I did not persue running it. although the list shows that the gearbox was all rebuilt and a new kickstart quadrent fitted. so possibly its just adjustment. This bike is in superb condition with all the top stuff fitted. Its ideal for shows or classic racing etc.
Viewing is welcome. Collection is preferred. although I can arrange delivery within the mainland UK by courier for £100. Finally. if you bid. you buy. no tyre kicking excitement afterwards.
