In September 1958 BSA introduced a new '250' that would provide the basis for an entire range of singles in capacities up to 500cc. This newcomer, the C15, featured a compact overhead-valve engine and unitary four-speed gearbox. Alternator electrics and coil ignition were features, early models being distinguished by a distributor-type points housing. Trials and scrambles versions were offered as the range expanded during the 1960s. This C15 was purchased by the current vendor in February 2016. The machine benefits from considerable refurbishment, having been repainted and fitted with new wheel rims and spokes; a new exhaust system; new handlebars and control levers; and a new seat. Last run in the summer of 2019, it will require re-commissioning before further use. Offered with an HPI printout and V5C document. The vendor is slimming down his collection of motorcycles, hence the sale.
