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                    4,650

Honda CB550K for sale
