1916 SUNBEAM 3 ½ HP 500CC FOR SALE MATCHING # For SaleFor sale is my 500cc Sunbeam from 1916. Model 3 ½ HP.
The Sunbeam has matching numbers as confirmed by the original paperwork dating back to 1916 that accompanies the bike. There are 3-4 pages; original registration documents, import papers etc. The earliest document dated 1916, the last document with handwritten notes up until after the second world war.
The Sunbeam was imported new to Denmark, where it was registered just north of Copenhagen with reg. number A364. The bike can then be traced via the papers up until after the Second World War. The Sunbeam re-appeared in the late eighties/early nineties and was treated to a full restoration by a competent restorer/mechanic. Upon finishing the Sunbeam, it was kept in a private collection for many years. I bought it from the previous owner with the intention to ride it and participate in rallies but too many bikes and a Norton flattank project now forces me to sell the Sunbeam.
A lovely, early Sunbeam and still in very good cosmetic and mechanical condition. It has practically not been used and will require the usual recomisioning before being ridden on the road again.
