The BSA Sunbeam was a scooter designed to have good performance and handling. The entry of the BSA group into the scooter field was announced by Edward Turner in October 1958. The model was available with either a 175cc two-stroke, single cylinder engine or a four-stoke, 250cc, twin cylinder unit. The 250cc BSA Sunbeam would have a cruising speed of 55 to 65mph and fuel consumption of approximately 120 miles per gallon.

This unusual example of a BSA has been restored in recent years and comes complete with a full set of accessories. These include a wheel carrier, luggage rack and windscreen.  It benefits from an electric start and is finished in a pearlescent green.  With just 22 miles recorded since the restoration, this four-stroke example is not only rare but comes complete with a reproduction workshop manual, original instruction manual, MoT test certificate (expired 2009) and a V5C registration document.

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
