BMW R100T for sale;

1980; Matching Numbers; Metallic Bronze; original UK supplied machine; very rare model; it was unused from almost new until it came ot one of our customers around 7 years ago when it was fully re-commissioned; it was used very sparingly before it was traded in to us having covered a mere 8,000 miles from new and still pretty much completely original; we subsequently sold it twice to regular customers; the previous to last owner barely used it only keeping it a year or so when we had it back and we then sold it to another very regular mature (in his 80's) customer of ours who used the machine extensively rattling up an impressive 37,000 miles in three years; he loved it; it has been exceptionally well maintained throughout that period benefiting from oil changes every 2,500 miles, new clutch etc etc which is all recorded; the owner has very reluctantly parted with it due to his advancing years where he is beginning to find it a little heavy to push about; it runs and rides beautifully; it clearly is not in anyway mint but it is very presentable and exceptionally original having now covered 46k miles from new, toolkit is under the seat                4,250

BMW R60 for sale;

1960; Originally a UK supplied machine but the engine has been changed at some point; interesting registration number (4532 W); high quality restoration some years ago but has been unused in a collection for 11 years; we have had it running and actually ridden it around 4 miles but it will require proper re-commissioning and some minor work to be properly fit for road use; priced accordingly; the engine sounds mechanically nice, the gearbox, clutch & brakes all work fine as does the charging etc;  cosmetically still really lovely but not flawless; previously supplied by ourselves            7,850

 BMW R50 for sale;

1959; Black; Matching Numbers; extensively restored some years ago and then subsequently thoroughly refreshed at a further cost of 4,350 to bring it to the higher exacting standards of the last owner 10 years ago and it has seen very little use since having been stored as part of a quality collection in a fully climate controlled environment; new carburettors, brake shoes, cables; seat, wiring harness all replaced with much more during the later refresh as well as a top end overhaul undertaken by Bob Porecha; toolkit present; this machine is a superb example in every way                HELD

Touring Trim with Electric Starter  fitted; 1955 frame with a 1961 engine; engine professionally fully rebuilt in 2013 including crank re-ground to -10 and barrels re-sleeved to standard; recon oil pump etc; starts easily and runs very nicely indeed being mechanically quiet; professionally rewired in 2020 when the indicators were fitted and pretty much unused since; very smart but not Concours machine; indicators have been very nicely fitted but can easily be removed if preferred; clearly in Touring Trim but the rear-set lugs have been fitted to the frame so iit could easily be converted to Clubmans Trim if required                    8,750

 

Watch Video of the BSA Gold Star running here

BSA DBD34 Gold Star for sale

Frame was originally supplied to Moss's of Thirsk, North Yorkshire as a DB32 Scrambler on 25th May 1957; engine to Commerfords in Thames Ditton as a Clubman in October 1958 however, we have some doubts about the originality of the engine number stampings albeit, if they have been re-stamped, it is well done using the correct type of stamps (last photo shows the number so make your own mind up) and we have priced it accordingly, it is however a genuine Gold Star crankcase; the good news is that this is not only a very smart machine cosmetically but it is in excellent order mechanically being really well sorted with upgrades to make it a thoroughly useable machine that should be very easy to live with but still having all of the charm of a cl;assic Gold Star, these upgrades include, Pearson Electric Starter, 12 volt electrics, Indicators, STD Gearbox, Mikuni Carburettor, TLS front brake plate in the Gold Star single sided drum; starts easily on the kick or electric; runs and rides extremely well with a lovely, mechanically quiet engine and it even ticks over                 15,000

  Watch video of the BSA A10 Running here

BSA A10 Gold Flash for sale;

1954; this model with the single sided brakes is my personal favourite of the BSA Twins; original registration; engine was changed for a slightly later but still the same CA10 series unit at some point in its distant past; 'Ride or Restore' machine that is perfectly presentable albeit a little scruffy in places with mediocre quality paint finish but it runs and rides very nicely; last owner is a long standing customer of ours who has owned the machine for 14 years; nto long after he aquired it, around 13 years ago one of the Conrod bolts came loose damaging the crankcase which has been professionally welded both inside and out 13 years ago; the machine has run perfectly since; at the same time the crankshaft was reground and good used pair of replacement conrods fitted; it was also all line reamed to make sure that the timing side bush is a perfect fit; the engine is certainly very sweet and starts easily; the fuel tank had a dent bashed out many years ago (see last picture) that clearly shows ripples in the chrome but is not in our view unslightly although a new chromed tank can be made available in the price, however it will require painting; charging can best be described as erratic                    4,250

BSA Rocket Gold Star Clubman for sale;

1963; we are as sure as we can be that this is a genuine RGS Frame/Rolling Chassis but not an RGS crankcase number so the engine has been changed; RRT2 gearbox; Dunlop Alloys; 190 Front Brake; Chrome Tank; looks very correct; full SRM engine rebuild in 2001 with receipts and doesn't appear to have covered many miles since; magneto converted to electronic ignition; Mikuni Carb fitted; Belt Primary Drive fitted in a standard (not Gold Star Primary Chaincase); lovely looking machine that sounds wonderful        12,750

Watch video of the BSA A7SS Scrambler running here

BSA A7 SS 'Scrambler' for sale;

both engine & frame date from 1956 so may well be original to each other; lovely looking machine in Scrambler Style trim; fully road registered with current V5c; daytime only as it has no lights currently fitted; runs and rides very well; look fantastic; previously supplied by ourselves    Sale Agreed

Watch video of the BSA A65 Firebird running here

BSA A65 Firebird Scrambler for sale;

1969; Matching Numbers; clearly an awful lot of time & money has been spent on a very comprehensive professional restoration of this BSA; a very detailed schedule of work carried out is in the file together with a BSAOC Dating Certificate;  it starts easily with a sweet sounding engine; it has only covered 20 miles since completion so whilst everything appears to function, it will require some detailed fettling as it gets used to make perfect; we are therefore selling the machine as a fully restored untested machine/project and it is priced accordingly which is substantially less than it changed hands for recently; soon to be featured in Real Classics Magazine                SOLD

Triumph TR6SS for sale;

1962; Matching Numbers; UK Supplied, original registration; original Buff Log Book; this machine originally came ot us from its only owner from new around 16 years ago (pic above of when he collected it from Kings of Oxford brand new). I then immediately sold it to a regular customer who restored it and sold it back to me a year later. I then kept it and rode it extensively for around 13 years covering many thousands of very enjoyable miles on it where it was always utterly reliable. I finally sold it to another regular customer in 2020 who spent close to 5,000 giving it a thorough refresh. They have now decided to part with it again which is why its back. It is unique in that it has the most extensive history file that I have ever had with any machine and is in truly superb order throughout. In its early life it was used in competition both in circuit speed trials and many off road trials. There is a photo album showing it throughout its life. A few of which are pictured above.                    SOLD
