Description:

1971 BSA B25 SS Goldstar
Reg. no. ARY643K
Frame no. B25 SSDE10054
Engine no. B25 SSDE10054
The B25 can trace its ancestry back to the C15, which was brought out in 1958 as a single cylinder OHV unit construction engine. The design has survived with only minor alterations through the years. At one point with the name of 440 Victor it became World Scrambles Champion in 1964 and 1965 with Jeff Smith on board. In 1971 it was restyled with oil in the frame and conical hubs. It was then called the B25 for the 250cc and B50 for the 500cc. The letters SS denotes that the styling was a street scrambler. There was also a T which stood for trials. It was the final flourish from BSA as in 1973 they finally closed its doors. The vendor of the bike in the auction tells us that it is in excellent mechanical condition, having just had an engine rebuild. Now this bike is offered to the market due to lack of use, and is sold with a V5c and a selection of bills.
