c.1965 BSA 343cc B40
Frame no. B40 8117
Engine no. B40F 493
Introduced in September 1958, the unitary construction BSA C15 250cc roadster replaced the outgoing C12 and would provide the basis for an entire range of singles in capacities up to 500cc. The first new C15-based model to feature an enlarged engine was the 343cc B40, an addition to the line-up for 1961. The B40 remained in production until 1965, many seeing service with the British Armed Forces, which ordered 2,000 following an extended reliability test. An older restoration, this B40 has been off the road in dry storage for several years and will require re-commissioning prior to further use. There are no documents with this Lot, which is sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.

20% from £50,001 to £1,000,000 of hammer price,
and 12% on the balance thereafter. This applies to each lot purchased and is subject to VAT.

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 catalog.
