Really Cool Sunbeam S7 Motorcycle 500cc de- luxe 1949

This is a lovely bike and a model that was so overlooked for many years, but I'm pleased to say that times have moved on and now and these bikes really look the part especially in this fine condition

Finished in the production colour of mist green with the extra wide balloon tyres, these were very expensive and over engineered bikes when new - loosely based on the BMW R75 from designs that were acquired from Germany after the war. The silky smooth o.h.c. parallel twin with its shaft drive was virtually a small car engine with its own wet sump and centre driven clutch, peaceful but produces a nice exhaust note to let you know she's alive and well

Restored we are lead to believe around 2009 but seen very little use since, clearly been kept mainly as a display piece and occasionally fired up just to keep everything in working order. We have just had the machine serviced and re-commissioned to include overhauled dynamo and all oils changed. As you can from the photos this one has the additional mounted Lycette pillion seat and footrests fitted. V5c and owners manual are present and I can confirm a very nice machine to ride as on test today. DEBIT/ CREDIT/CARDS TAKEN. (Delivery Service Available )
