Lot Details
1950 BSA 499cc B34 Gold Star
Registration no. FSJ 825
Frame no. ZB32GS 2673
Engine no. ZB34GS 2251
Post-war, BSA's icon, the Gold Star, came into its own in 1950 with the introduction of the alloy-engined B34 model, as offered here, with its Q.D. wheels, excellent brakes, and distinctive finish, nowadays preferred by many to the later models because of their light weight and good handling. FSJ 825, an original machine, a long-time favourite - and the last to be sold - of the Matlock-based M&C Collection, is illustrated in their catalogue and has been restored over a period with excellent paintwork (tank by Lewis and Templeton) and mechanics. A regretted sale, this lovely Gold Star is offered with V5C, expired MOTs to 2011, dating certificate, hand-book and a wealth of documents.
