The incomplete BSA-based moto-cross 'special' offered here consists of the frame from a 1955 B31 350cc single and a 1948 A7 twin-cylinder motor, the latter featuring the early 'semi-unit' type of engine/transmission construction, while the front forks are Norton Roadholder. Period photographs (scans of which are available) taken of this competition machine in the early days of the Parker family's ownership show it with the same competitor number on the side roundels. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.

For Motor Cars and Motorcycles a 15% Buyer's Premium is payable on the first £50,000 of the final Hammer Price of each Lot, and 12% on any amount by which the Hammer Price exceeds £50,000. VAT at the standard rate is payable on the Premium by all Buyers, unless otherwise stated.

Some lots may be subject to VAT on the Hammer Price. These lots will be clearly marked with the relevant symbol printed beside the lot number in the catalogue.
