**SOLD** 1971 BSA Thunderbolt "Police Special"

The vendor has kindly supplied the following:

  • In blue, with just 12,000 miles.  Built for the Australian Police and badged as “Police Special”
  • Never exported due to the demise of BSA in 1973, this motorcycle was originally supplied via BSA to Queens Park Motors, Salford Manchester
  • I have the BSA owners club certificate showing the provenance
  • The previous owner has spent over £20,000 on a full restoration.  I have all receipts, all matching numbers
  • The motorcycle comes with a spare larger fuel tank in the same blue colour as it was never fitted. 
  • In immaculate condition and good running order
