c.1955 BSA "Gold Star"/BB33 Scrambler, 499cc. Registration number not registered. Frame number not found. Engine number BB33.6783.
Arguably the most successful production racing motorcycle ever, the BSA Gold Star formed the mainstay of clubman's racing in the 1950s, while its trials and scrambles derivatives demonstrated the design's versatility by chalking up an equally impressive record in off-road competition. Indeed, throughout the 1950s, the Gold Star scrambler was as dominant on the dirt as the clubman's version was on the racetrack. Gold Star-mounted John Avery won the British Championship for BSA in 1952 while Jeff Smith took the title in '55, '56, '60 and '61, by which time the Goldie had effectively been superseded by the new B40-based scrambler.
This example uses an unmarked Gold Star frame mounted with a BB33 engine from 1955, a SC scrambler gearbox is fitted are many other parts suitable for off road use. It looks to be an older restoration in a distinctive pale green frame. It started on the second kick when viewed and sounded very impressive.
There is no paperwork with this machine.
