The B44 became one of BSA's most popular models and achieved noted success in hillclimbs. In North American markets, the popular single-cylinder four-stroke model was sold as the Shooting Star. These iconic BSAs represent a golden period in British motorcycling and are an excellent entry point into the hobby today.

The example offered here is described by the vendor as a restored B44 whose early history is not known. Regardless, it will make a new owner fully cognoscent of the joys of the vintage Brit bike experience and the thrill of BSA ownership specifically. Offered on a California Certificate of Title.
