1968 BSA B25 Trials, 250cc. Registration number KCK 107F. Frame number B25 B4445. Engine number not known. BSA acquired the Triumph marque in 1951 and developed the C15 250 cc from the Triumph Tiger Cub; in 1958 they introduced unit construction and the BSA C15 Star was their first model, which was much more reliable than the outgoing C11, although it still had many gremlins. In 1967 it was replaced by the new B25 Starfire and C25 Barracuda, with a stronger crankcase and alloy cylinder barrel. The Starfire was aimed at the all-important US market and was styled as an off road bike with raised exhaust and strengthened handlebars, produced between 1968 and 1970. An unashamed exercise in 'badge engineering', the Starfire and the Triumph TR25W Trophy basically were the same machine except for an alteration in gearing, adoption of different wheel sizes. The range stayed until the end of BSA in 1972. This trials version appears to have been built by Duncan Brown of Preston in 2005 and registered with DVLA in the February. Our vendor bought it in 2007 and has been occasionally used as a winter bike by him. There is MOT history from 2006 at 2,763 miles and 2012 at 33,380 and 33,503 in 2013. It is now Historic and the mileage is 33,800. Sold with the V5C and MOT history, it should only need light recommissioning before green lane use again.
