COMPLETE RESTORATION - LOOKS TERRIFIC - PRICED TO SELL
1961 BSA A10R Super Rocket (650CC) professionally restored in, to the best of my knowledge, factory correct paint/chrome color scheme. Powder coated frame, everything rechromed including, spokes, rims, hubs, forks, magneto parts, fender stays, grab handle, triple clamp plate,etc. The engine, transmission and magneto were fully rebuilt. There are approximately 500 miles since restoration. The bike has been shown twice in the Atlanta GA area, winning first place both times. A judge in one show said to me, all but one of us voted for you, we're just tired of seeing nothing but old Harleys in the Vintage Class! Interestingly, prior to restoration, this bike once belonged to Buz Walneck publisher of Walneck's Cycle Trader.
I bought this bike in 2002 and rode it occasionally (on nice days) till around 2007, it's never been in the rain or outside overnight. It's a beautiful bike but it hasn't been started or ridden in years. Here's what I can see wrong with it. Nothing but the broken tail light lens can be spotted from more than a few feet away but on close inspection I have found a small paint chip on the rear fender about 1/8"X3/8" below the license plate (see photo), the chrome is freckling on the wheel rims and some chrome came off when I polished them (see photo), and there is a crack in the left rubber front fork boot. The interior of the tank looks OK to me but I can't guarantee that. I see no sign of leaking on the bottom of the tank. The inside of the cap looks good (see photos) Still, I would suggest you take the tank off and use one of the tank cleaner/sealers on the market like Cream, etc. The tires are pretty hard but may "look" rideable however I cannot recommend riding the bike without new tires. I have tried to list everything I can see but this bike is sold "as is" with no warranty whatsoever. At a minimum, it will need the carb cleaned and the oil changed, throttle and spark retard cables lubricated etc before trying to start it. It always started easily, but that was at least 10-12 years ago.
This is a beautiful but older restoration. It does not, in "my" opinion, need more than some TLC. Look at the photo's and you might ask, why am I selling selling it at a low price? Actually, I am pricing it to sell. I'm in my early 70's and it's time to let some things go.
TERMS OF SALE
The winning bidder (or "Buy it now") must send a cashiers check in the amount of $500.00 via overnight mail within 5 days of the auction close date. Full payment in a cashiers check must clear my bank prior to shipment.
I will assist as much as possible on my end but any costs related to shipping are the responsibility of the buyer. The internet is full of companies claiming to be motorcycle shipping experts. Maybe they are, maybe not, you choose the shipper. I can say that, in years past I have bought and sold several vintage bikes valued from $25 - $30,000.00 without a scratch and in every case (except one going back to England) I used Federal Companies (federalcos.com) who provided door-to-door service via Allied Van Lines. I see they are still in the motorcycle shipping business. I live in Carrollton GA 30117.
