Lovely original BSA C11. I bought this bike with the thought of turning it into a classic bobber but With a number of other projects I’m not going to get to it for a number of years so I’m looking to move it on.
It’s a lovely bike, everything is working. It has at some point in its history it was given the larger 350cc bore so it has plenty of power for a C11. It runs well and starts easily. The metalwork and paint is mostly original and shows the character of a classic bike. It is no way pristine, there are two small dents in the tank, the paint is old and shows it’s history, the chrome is imperfect, but if your looking for a lovely classic bike that you could use now or fully restore then this is a perfect candidate.
The bike is registered on the VC5 as 1977 when the buff logbook was updated. The Bike is tax and MOT exempt.
However checking with the BSA heritage sites it’s clear it’s an 1951 model based on frame number.
Genuine classic BSA ready to be enjoyed and loved. The price reflects its character and I am in no rush to sell so please no silly offers.
