1959 BSA DB32 Gold Star
Reg. no. RAS 423
Frame no. CB32 8468
Engine no. DB32GS149
The BSA Gold Star was made by BSA in both 350 and 500cc form from 1938 to 1963, encompassing several generations of development. Single-cylinder four-stroke motorcycles, they were known for being among the fastest bikes of the 1950s in their classes. Hand built and highly customisable by the prospective purchasers, each motorcycle was delivered to the lucky new owner with a print-out of the dynamometer readings that their new steed had achieved at the factory. In 1955 the DB Series Gold Star was launched; improvements for this model included improved oil feed to the crank and finned front brakes. The 350cc DB32 continued in production until 1962.
This 1959 350cc DB32 was completely restored to factory specification in 2007. It had only covered 150 miles since restoration when the vendor acquired it two years ago; now it has still only covered 750 miles and remains in very good condition. In the vendor’s ownership, it has been converted to 12-volt electrics, the magneto and dynamo have been reconditioned, and it has been fitted with new tyres and tubes. It comes with a dating certificate, a V5c and an MOT until May next year.
