Owing to a profusion of projects I need to thin out a little. Firstly let me say that the picture shown in the advert is plucked from the web and is shown as an example of a fairly correct 1949 ZB Gold Star.
My 1949 ZB34GS has a very low serial number and is probably from the first batch of 500cc Gold Stars produced after the war. It was shipped to the USA and has been back in the country for a long time, but remained unloved. The frame and motor have 'matching numbers- I have some old BSA/VMCC paperwork to verify, but easily re-verified.
The motor was rebuilt recently by Phil Pearson, which speaks for itself. The gearbox is the correct semi-close-ratio (MCR) unit and I've rebuilt that with very close attention to detail.
The fuel tank was fully restored by Lewis & Templeton a long time ago and is carefully wrapped up. The wheels have also been rebuilt but suffered in previous owners storage and probably want re-rimming to achieve perfection.
I think that the cycle parts are 95% present and in good condition. I took a lot of trouble to obtain a (very close) replica 'panama-hat' read mudguard and all of the associated stays, mudguard chromed by S&T.
The main effort required is to re-enamel the frame and cycle parts, and to re-assemble. A good mag-dyno is also present. Most of the fasteners are present, many factory originals (no stainless ..). There will of course be some parts missing but this project is an easy winter re-build.
Please ask away with questions.
