This is a grand piece of English motoring history, 98 years old and in fine condition. It's a 557cc four-stroke, side-valve single with a three-speed hand-shift gearbox. Older restoration, all-original, no reproduction parts, fully optioned with the acetylene lighting, fully-enclosed alloy chaincase fore and aft, lockable side toolboxes, luggage rack and period correct doctor's bag.
Imported from Europe in the 90s. Eligible for all veteran motorcycle events, such as the London-to-Brighton Run in the UK, the Cannonball Rally in the USA and others worldwide. Very few left on Earth and perhaps the only one in North America. These were stalwart working machines, used for touring, as sidecar tugs for family outings, by the police and as everyday transport to the factory and home for working men and women between the wars. Think "Peaky Blinders."
Fully rebuilt and restored and in running condition, although it has not been started in around a year. Some service records, history, operating instructions, etc. Period ads, and BSA literature included.
Serious and knowledgeable only. No, you cannot come and take it for a joy ride. No, you cannot ride it to work every day in LA traffic. Not for the novice motorcycle enthusiast unless you only intend to use it to decorate your living room or the foyer of your office. Sold on Bill of Sale.
