BSA Motorcycles For Sale

BSA A65 Thunderbolt for sale;

1971; Matching Numbers; Feature Restoration & Cover Machine in Real Classics Magazine last year, copies of the magazines are with it; it was clearly a low mileage machine imported form the US before work began; much of the work was carried out by Richard Negus (Rotary Norton fame) to his usual high standard; the engine is on Standard Bore and in extremely good condition throughout feeling very strong sounding lovely;  has some subtle upgrades to make it a Classic with a slightly modern twist;  runs and rides exceptionally well and has a lovely feel on the road; frame was not refinished so has some touch ups here and there; really lovely useable machine with satin finish and virtually no chrome; it's a bit of a Celebrity in own right too                5,995

BSA B40 for sale;

1962; looks to be genuinely unrestored and original; beautifully patinated but certainly not scruffy although the Jones Rims are a little pitted as is some of the chrome on the fuel tank; there are chips and marks around that have been touched up (nasty scratches at the bottom of the front mudguard on the offside) we're pretty certain that it is still in first paint; you can just see the remians of the gold pinstriping on the tank; starts very easily and has a very willing, sweet engine; runs and rides exceptionally well with everything working without fault; ticks over like a clock probably due to the brand new carburettor; it has clealry been very well loved for much of its life to have survived so well; must be very rare in this condition today, very sweet example                        2,995

1952; transferable registration; older high quality restoration and still extremely smart but certainly not Mint in that it does have the odd small pit in the chrome and chips in the paint here and there; the chrome is also slightly dull on the exhaust; the speedo works but is a bit eratic although this was improving on my test ride so is probably due to lack of recent use; looks very correct; running and riding extremely well with a lovely mechanically quiet engine etc, even the brakes work!; a really lovely example                3,995

BSA A10 Gold Flash for sale;

1961; Maroon & Chrome; Transferable Registration; very nicely restored in the not too distant past and still looking really lovely; engine overhauled very recently and sounding extremely sweet; the machine runs and rides really well in that I couldn't fault it with the exception of the squeaky rear brake and it is currently not charging; the frame number on the machine matches the number on the V5c but is not a BSA original stamping hence low price        SOLD


Gilera Classic Motorcycles For sale

Velocette Thruxton for sale

1967; very correct with Dunlop Alloys etc but fitted with 1000 series Concentric instead of GP therefore starts easily, runs really well and ticks over too; multiple Show Prize Winner but make no mistake, this machine has been ridden and is sorted not just used as an 'ornament' unlike so many Thruxton's today; superb example throughout, in fact the photos do not really favour the bike, in our opinion  it looks better in the 'flesh' so we'll take some more shortly; standard gear lever is with it; coming from an excellent source who is well known in Velocette circles            23,995

Velocette GTP for sale;

1939; extremely pretty and correct looking machine; recently fettled and sorted including having the speedometer refurbished hence the reading of 1 mile; starts easily and runs very well indeed; it has been part of a very well known and respected Velocette Collection for the last 14 years         SOLD
