Lot 2019

Description:

1938 BSA G14 1000cc V-Twin Combination
Reg. no. EXY 626
Frame no. JG14 287
Engine no. JG14 430
The first motorcycles made by the Birmingham Small Arms Company in the early 1900s used proprietary engines such as the Belgian Minerva, and it was not until 1910 that the firm introduced a BSA-designed and built machine. The firm\'s first v-twin, the 770cc (6-7hp) Model E, appeared late in 1919; a larger, 986cc version debuted as the Model F in 1922 and would continue in production as the Model G, regularly revised and updated, until 1940, though changes made to the big v-twin during the 1930s were few compared with those made to BSA\'s singles.
This delightfully original and very desirable matching numbers G14 is paired with a BSA launch-type sidecar, and it has been in current ownership for 42 years, therefore very well-known in the local area. This late G14 has the luxury of a foot-change gearbox, fitted from new, and it has also been cleverly converted to coil ignition by the owner.
