Previosu owner 43 years; A fully rebuilt chassis with original re-tempered road springs, steering, suspension, axles and rebuilt diff. Very sound MPJG engine, orig, original radiator (just been re-cored) & excellent original shell. Recently overhauled brakes, steering (we have just fitted a VW Steering Box which completely transforms the steering in that it is now precise and very light, the original is with it and could be refitted within an hour or so), fuel system overhauled and fitted with a solid centre/twin 'O' ring no leak fuel taps. All the gauges are original (chronometric) fully restored by John Marks of 'Vintage Restorations' and working incuding the clock.

The seats have that lovely 'just worn' look to complement the rest of the car. The paint is excellent in Cellulose Ivory with correct red interior as supplied by the factory, together with full black weather equipment of roof, tonneau & side screens. This is such an early TA that the wheels were factory colour coded, and of course the rad. slats match the interior colour as supplied in 1936. The accessories are all correct, including the 'Altette'horn, Lucas FT 27 foglamp,air cleaner and the ORIGINAL tool trays with all their tools!! 3,000 miles since restoration so now nicely sorted.

BSA Motorcycles For Sale

BSA DB34 Gold Star Clubman for sale

on the face of it this machine appears to be a very well restored Matching Numbers 1956 DB34 Gold Star that started life as a Tourer and has subsequently been converted to Clubman trim, however it has a B31/B33 crankcase stamped up with the correct DB34 number and very well done it is too; we are also slightly suspicious of the frame number stamping; therefore, we are selling this machine as a Gold Star REPLICA just to be on the safe side; there is a Club Certificate stating the numbers match those of a DB34 sold to Movea Paris as a DB34 Tourer; it is fitted with an RRT2 gearbox, GP Carb, Dunlop alloy rear wheel and a Borrani on the front; it has as you can see a 190 front brake and lots of other nice genuine Gold Star parts; we are advised that the engine was completely rebuilt by Dave Flintoff but there is no paperwork to verify it; it does however start easily and it rides very well with excellent brakes, clutch, gearbox and a working charging system; 450 miles since restoration in 2003; last owner since 2005; transferable SOmerset Registration; this is a seriously nice machine for the money            £11,995
