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.)
1952 BSA Bantam D1 Tourer.123CC, 3 Speed, 4BHP, Chain Drive. Only 1300 Miles (Not Authenticated, but believed to be genuine). Finished In Military Green, with Leather Pannier Bags and working Bulb Horn. Not restored, but running and looks quite fetching in its original Green Colour. The Metal Work is also all good. Matching Engine and Chassis Numbers. A very genuine and usable classic. Probably not used for many a year. Well worth a look.
