1969 BSA B40 MkI, R.A.F., 348cc. Registration number KFE 26G. Frame number A/CTS/WV/8592/DC52 (2). Engine number B40 GB 606. The B40 like most military motorcycles of the period was basically a road machine with limited off road performance. It is suggested that the total number supplied to the British Armed forces was 3,087, which included 135 for the RAF and 26 for the Royal Navy. This example, with its rare military tag still attached, was with a Dr J. Maw of Tyne and Wear in 2011 when he had the engine rebuilt with a conrod overhaul. There are MOT's on file from 1998 with a mileage of 11,240 through to 2013 at 11,403 miles. Today it is at 11,482 miles. Running recently, we would always recommend safety checks before road use with this rare R.A.F. bike. Sold with the V5C, previous MOT's and receipts.
