I bought this S8 from a retired REME engineer in 2005. He was better on the mechanicals than the tinware etc. He also had a Triumph 500 and kept both in a shed but unfortunately his wife then got a mobility scooter. She told him that she owned half the shed and one bike had to go as her scooter was going the shed. He had been using the Sunbeam around town and the Triumph on runs. He decided that the Sunbeam was the sacrificial lamb but seemed so sorry it was going so I agreed he would have one last run by delivering it. It was only 22miles but by the time he arrived it had an oil leak from the head but the compression seems OK. I put it in the garage and there it has stayed. I've never had it running since and now need to make some room.

It's a 1955 S8 with all steel mudguards, battery box and the electric box. It also has a fibreglass tool box, a rogue headlight and speedo and painted wheel rims.

Included in the sale is an 8 inch headlight shell, domed glass, rim and reflector to replace the rogue bits.

It has its original and transferable registration number and a non matching engine.
