    Records show this Gold Star was manufactured 1st April 1955 and supplied to BSA dealer Comerfords in Thames Ditton. A certificate from the Gold Star Club states that both the engine and frame are ’55 but not paired, the bike was originally supplied in ‘Clubmans’ trim.

    The bike was re registered here in the UK in 1993, an MoT at the time of registration stated the mileage at 2,603 we have 14 subsequent MoT’s that show the current mileage of 21,542 is correct since the bike came back to the England. In this time it has had many modifications to make it a superb riding Gold Star. It is fitted with a Bob Newby racing clutch and primary belt drive with an electric starter motor which is disguised beneath the engine. The gearbox is an RRT2 and the engine is fitted with a later DBD cylinder head running through a 1½” GP carb, in addition the engine had new main bearings, piston, rings, valves and guides in 2003. Overall the bike is in very nice condition sitting on Akront alloy rims. It is however an absolute joy to ride, the electric starter works efficiently and is perfect for any body with tired knees. A very sorted Gold Star it is ready to ride.
