Lot 2005

Description:

1938 Levis B Special 250cc
Reg. no. EOL 285
Frame no. 26529
Engine no. 26670
The company making Levis motorcycles was Butterfield Ltd of Birmingham and they were in business from 1911 to 1940, manufacturing very popular lightweight motorcycles. Initially it was the 2-stroke market that this company targeted but in 1928 a range of 4-stroke motorcycles were produced. The Levis ohv \'B\' Special is a jewel amongst 1930s motorcycles, being originally handbuilt from the factory, where no production line methods were used. The result was a super low-slung sports motorcycle with a lively performance.
This 1938 example is said, by our vendor, to be in excellent condition having been fully restored between 2005 and 2010. It is fitted with the ohv twin port engine and a 4-speed foot change gearbox which makes this a very usable vintage bike. Still in super restored condition, this machine has come to the market from a small collection of motorcycles and we are advised that it will require some gentle recomissioning and a new battery prior to use. It is sold here with much history, an old logbook, a selection of bills and a current V5c.
