Lot 214: BSA A7 Shooting Star

Classic Vintage Cars & Motorcycles, Brightwells Auctioneers and Valuers (27 November 2013)

THIS IS A LATE ENTRY AND WILL NOT APPEAR IN THE PRINTED CATALOGUE. The BSA A7 was launched in 1946 and remained in production until 1961 being gradually improved over that time through two versions, the Star Twin from 1949 and the Shooting Star from 1954. The culmination of the development of the A7, the Shooting Star had an alloy cylinder head, a duplex cradle frame with swinging arm rear suspension, full-width light alloy hubs and 8-inch drum brakes. Engine compression was upgraded from 6.6:1 to 7:1 and power was up to 30bhp at 5,800rpm, with a top speed of just under 90mph. Made in 1958 and first registered in Dorset on 1st January 1959, this A7 Shooting Star has had just one registered keeper from new. Fully restored about two years ago and barely used since, it is said to be in excellent running order and in fine condition throughout. It comes with the original buff log book and a V5C.
