The BSA B50 is a beautiful 499cc single cylinder OHV motorcycle built at the factory in Small Heath, Birmingham. The BSA B50SS "Street Scrambler" Gold Star was developed for street use and was primarily aimed at the US market. She proved her worth by winning the 500cc class at the Thruxton 500 Miles and the Barcelona 24 Hours. She inspired the development of the Yamaha XT 500. BSA had to close its doors in 1973, making this 1972 Gold Star one of the last of its kind.
The Scrambler featured an oil bearing frame, aluminum front forks and 'tapered hub' drum brakes, and a completely redesigned electrical system housed in an aluminum housing under the front of the fuel tank with a quick connect socket that allowed the headlight to be removed for racing. Most notable is the solid black muffler covered with a perforated stainless steel heat shield. The styling was quite bold and aggressive for the time and is still contemporary today.
Known as a "bitch to start", almost impossible to kick off with a hot engine, she is still an absolute eye-catcher everywhere. Especially in this perfectly restored original condition.
