Sellers original description:
BSA C11G, Totally original matching engine and frame numbers last used on the road in 1964. I have no original paper work for this bike, but there is the original tax disc and number plates and the engine and frame numbers match, so you should be able to keep the original number on the plates, I do believe if you are a member of the BSA owners club for a small fee they will sort all relivent paper work and re register the bike. This bike has covered 30388 miles.
I have restored this Bike over a couple of years, it has been sitting in the shed covered in blankets for two years. I pulled it out the shed this morning put a drop of fresh petrol and a drop of oil in the tank, a battery, tickled the carb and it fired up on the third kick!

In fact any thing I could find new that fitted this bike i bought regardless of cost.
