1937 BSA Empire Star 250cc
Reg. no. CYB 417

During the 1930s BSA concentrated on producing a range of dependable, well-made, competitively priced motorcycles. The firm’s single-cylinder range was redesigned by Val Page for 1937, the engines taking on many of the characteristics they would retain in the post-war era. There were three new offerings in the 250 class: the sidevalve B20 and a pair of overhead-valve models – B20 and B22 - the latter designation being adopted for the top-of-the-range Empire Star. The new engines were housed in conventional cycle parts and drove via four-speed gearboxes, the Empire Star’s benefiting from the convenience of foot change. Until recently this bike had been in a private collection for many years; the condition is still very good. It may require minor recommissioning prior to use, and is offered with a V5c.
