This bike even comes with the working original tire pump. I am also including the restoration and spare parts books you see in the photos as well as the original owners manual that is period correct for the motorcycle. Lastly, cloth BSA motorcycle cover also goes with the bike.
I am reluctantly selling the motorcycle to fund the restoration of my 1978 Porsche 911SC Targa. I am the third owner and purchased it years ago from an engineer at Sikorsky Aircraft in Stratford. Any questions and you can contact me or feel free to contact Competition Cycle in Stratford Connecticut where you can view the bike as well.
There is a plaque on the bike's rear fender with a strange coat of arms that is stamped "By appointment to Her Majesty's..." and I cannot make out the rest of it (rubbed away from years of polishing). I do not know if this means the bike was in the Queen's motorcade or not (no idea how to prove this). See photo for yourself.
If the bike does not make the reserve, will entertain reasonable offers. The buyer is responsible for vehicle transport and shipping. I accept cashier's check, ash, r money order, ll of which must clear prior to picking up the motorcycle in Connecticut. A deposit through Pay Pal is required within 48 hours of winning the auction. Ebay does not recognize the British VIN number. Good luck. I will miss this bike.
