1959 BSA Gold Star Clubmans For Sale

Please see for sale my 1959 BSA Gold Star DBD500 Clubman. The bike was registered in May 1959 and sold by Glanfield Lawrence (Highbury). The bike passed to the previous owner in September 1959 and he kept the bike until I purchased it in 2015.
The bike was only used occasionally in its later life, but has been pampered and well looked after. I have had the bike for 5-years, I stripped and cleaned and painted, the engine has been gone through. Unfortunately, I now have a bad back and I’m too tall for it, so sadly time to move on. The bike retains its original registration.
The bike runs well, once you have the knack of starting it and is surprisingly fast, I suspect that a magneto service would be beneficial. The GP Carb has new jets and has both types of float bowls available (biscuit type fitted). I have tried a Mikuni 36mm which is genuinely a revelation, but unfortunately doesn’t look right.
According to the previous owner the engine was tuned or looked after by Motte and Ward (who used to tune and race Manx Norton’s in the 60’s). The bike is currently in cafe racer form with a genuine Lyta petrol tank supplied by Hichisson Dartford, central oil tank, Superlegara front fork kit and an alloy cafe racing seat, maybe from Lyta.
The bike has Dunlop rims, new Avon Road Rider tyres, full width front hub, GP carb and of course a RRT2 gearbox, so it has all the best DBD parts fitted.
The bike is fitted with a Racing magneto and an early magnetic Smiths Rev counter ATRC (which I’ve told is worth £1,000).
The bike comes with both original toolbox and oil tank, rev counter, magneto and dynamo some engine spares, original buff log book, the original engine performance certificate of performance, BSAOC dating certificate and report, a taylor-dow catalogue and numerous bits of paperwork.
There's always a question over originality, I got it from the guy who said he had it in 60's and have loads of paperwork and the owners club seem happy, so I think is a proper one.
Finally another anecdote that back in the 60's the previous owner met Agostini at Brands Hatch who was testing MV's who sat on the bike and chatted to the previous owner, not sure if he rode it.
