The Sunbeam S7 and S8 are British motorcycles designed by Erling
Poppe based on the BMW R75 designs that were acquired by BSA
(together with the full rights to the Sunbeam brand) at the end of
World War II. Manufactured in Redditch. the engine layout was an
unusual in-line. 500 cc twin which drove a shaft to the rear wheel.
The inline engine made this technologically feasible. horizontally
opposed ('flat') twin cylinders on BMW motorcycles had already used
shaft drives. The early S7 was expensive and over engineered and
the S8. which were produced with fewer features to reduce costs. br/>retained many of the innovative parts of the early Sunbeam and
updating some ideas.

This Sunbeam was originally built with a sidecar. however. the
engine dropped a valve in 1964 and the bike was put into storage.
It was eventually passed onto a museum. who. passed it onto the
current vendor. He restored the Sunbeam to a very high standard. br/>choosing to have it 'as a solo' machine. The frame has been powder
coated. the engine has been rebuilt. new wheels and tyres fitted
and the engine and gearbox polished to a fine finish. This is a
delightful motorcycle in outstanding condition and would enhance
any collection.
