BSA Bantam D1, 1959, 125cc, beautifully restored.
This 1960 Gold Star is arguably the most desirable of its type, in Clubman’s specification. The 499-cc engine was reportedly used in a racing Clubman before being fitted to this machine and has all the correct features, including rare AMAL GP carburetor, RR T2 close-ratio gearbox and aluminum wheel rims. The subject of an extensive restoration completed in 1993 by marque specialist John Gleed, it has seen nominal use since and comes with a file containing invoices of the work carried out. Presented today in superb condition throughout, it has recently benefitted from a service and general check over.
A complete Concours rebuild including engine and transmission by the highly regarded BSA craftsman, Don Harrell, of Visalia, California. It has been ridden just 415 break-in miles. Everything is in ideal working order. This Concours quality Firebird is ready to show or ride with confidence. (*Please note the motorcycle was built in 1969 and titled as a 1970 for the first year it was sold, which often happens with vintage motorcycles.)
