Property of a deceased's estate
1969 BSA 247cc B25 Fleet Star
Registration no. CDD 52G
Frame no. XC 8976 B25FS
Engine no. XC 8976 B25FS
BSA revamped its unitary construction singles range for 1967, the new 250cc B25 Starfire and C25 Barracuda models retaining the same basic engine layout as the outgoing C15 but with a stronger Victor-type crankcase assembly and new 'square-fin' alloy cylinder barrel. Inside, there was a stronger one-piece forged crankshaft and, somewhat unusually for a single, a split shell-type big-end bearing. Introduced for 1969, the Fleet Star version – as its name suggests – was intended for bulk purchasers such as the armed forces, police forces, and other such organisations. It came with a lower compression ratio and lower gearing. Offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed, this example of a rare unitary BSA 250 comes with various detached parts and would form the basis of an interesting 'special'. Accompanying documentation consists of an old-style V5 document and an expired MoT (1980).

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 £500,000 of the final Hammer Price of each Lot, and 12% on any amount by which the Hammer Price exceeds £500,000. VAT at the standard rate is payable on the Premium by all Buyers, unless otherwise stated.
