BSA DBD34 500 Gold Star (1961)



BSA DBD34 500 Gold Star (1961) – In 1937 Wal Handley lapped the Brooklands race circuit at 100mph on a BSA Empire Star and was awarded a ‘Gold Star Pin’. This single event prompted BSA to put the Gold Star into production, updating the design over the next 4 decades. In 1956 they introduced the DBD34 variant, complete with clip-ons, wide finned alloy barrel, GP carburettor, RRT2 close-ratio gearbox and swept back exhaust… of these dominated the senior race at the IOM TT that year. This lovely example has just come out of long term storage and comes complete with all the correct paperwork, and will be assessed over the next few days. Price £15,950
