1953 BSA C11



1953 BSA C11

Popular as a ride to work or learner machine. We often wonder how many 16 year old bikers graduated from a 250cc BSA to something like a 650 A10 the week following the passing of their test. The history folder includes manuals, some DVLA paperwork and a BSA owner club vehicle report confirming  its despatch to Redhill Motors, Maidstone on 22nd April 1953.

Finished in black with front teles, rear jampots and single seat. Speedo in the tank. Feels to have good compression. Now exempt MOT and free road tax.

The vendor has kindly supplied the following:

Matching numbers bike with original engine verified with BSA owners club certificate.

Numerous new parts fitted including new big end, re-bored. New valves and springs and new stainless wheels.

On site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Don't forget. We personally collect FREE of charge around 90% of all our auction vehicles.

So, if you have a vehicle which you would like us to re-home.... just make the call. 01751 474455

Thank you.
