1932 BSA 349CC L32-5 BLUE STAR (LOT 421)
REGISTRATION NO. DSJ 140
FRAME NO. NONE VISIBLE
ENGINE NO. Z5 1013
During the 1930s its advertising slogan - 'One in Four is a BSA' - reflected the Birmingham-based company's status as the world's largest motorcycle manufacturer. The Depression years of the early 1930s forced BSA to reduce its range of models, just ten being offered for 1932. Among these though, were two new overhead-valve sports models of 350cc and 500cc, both typed 'Blue Star' and featuring tuned twin-port engines incorporating high-compression pistons, 'hotter' cams and stronger valve springs. A four-speed gearbox with optional foot change was another feature common to what were then BSA's top-of-the-range sports models. Both engines had vertical cylinders and magneto ignition, and were carried in conventional cycle parts with rigid frames and girder front forks. A 250cc Blue Star was added to the range for 1933. According to the V5c, this L32-5 was first registered on the 31st December 1931. An older restoration, 'DSJ 140' was purchased in 1997 by the current vendor and is offered for sale with a current V5C. Stored in a heated garage in recent years and unused for some time, the BSA appears to be in good order; nevertheless, careful re-commissioning and the customary safety checks are advised before returning it to the road.

£5,000 - 7,000
€5,600 - 7,800

As with all Lots in the Sale, this Lot is sold 'as is/where is' and Bidders must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding.
