    Registered 5th March 1959 in Bolton Lancs, and still retaining its Bolton registration number 7093 WE, this genuine DBD Gold Star carries both an engine and frame from ’59 but not paired from the factory according to a letter from the GS owners club. Having had a total of six owners the bike was restored in 2001 and the engine rebuilt by BSA specialist Phil Pearson Engineering, this included a new crank, main bearings, liner and Wiseco piston, as well as new valves, guides and springs etc. At this time the clocks were re set and the bike has since covered only 1824 miles, we understand that the bike was stored and unused between 2006 and 2013 when the previous owner acquired it.

    Remaining in good general condition it has been in regular use since. Fitted with an Amal 1000 series concentric carb and an RRT2 gearbox the bike rides very well, and has a very light weight clutch, obviously modified. Its overall appearance is good with no corrosion to the frame parts, it is also fitted with an original alloy Lyta fuel tank, which does have a small dent in the right hand side and a Taylor Dow type twin leading shoe front brake. A very good example the bike is easy to start for Gold Star and the modified clutch makes it a joy to ride. It is offered with the engine rebuild invoices, some old MoT’s and UK V5C logbook.
