1971 BSA 740cc Rocket III
Registration no. UMA 429K
Frame no. A75R KG00367
Engine no. A75R KG00367

Essentially a 'Tiger-and-a-half', the Triumph and BSA 750cc Triples were launched in 1969. BSA-Triumph had learned a lot about engine development from racing the 500cc twins, and the Triples were the most powerful machines in their class. Today they enjoy an enthusiastic following worldwide and are supported by numerous recognised specialists and a first rate owners' club – the TR3OC – whose annual 'Beezumph Rally' is highly recommended.

A matching-numbers 1972 model built in September 1971, this Rocket III was exported new to the USA and first registered in the UK in July 2010. Restored by its first UK owner in 2010 (all bills on file), the BSA was converted by him to five-speed transmission and electric starting in 2018. The fuel tank was restored by specialists Lewis & Templeton and the speedometer rebuilt (but not zeroed) by Gagg & Son. Last run earlier this year, having covered only some 1,500 miles since restoration. 'UMA 429K' has a number of concours awards to its credit: Llan Bike Fest 2017; B.M.P.S. 2017; TOMC 'Best Classic Motorcycle' 2014; 'Best Rocket III' TR3OC Cadwell Park 2014; Best Mk2 Rocket 3' Anglesey Circuit 2010; and 'Best Mark II Rocket 3' Beezumph 20 (all awards included). Offered with a dating certificate, V5C document and keys.
