The BSA Sunbeam was a scooter designed to have good performance and handling. The entry of the BSA group into the scooter field was announced by Edward Turner in October 1958. The model was available with a 175cc two-stroke, single cylinder engine or a four-stoke, 250cc, twin cylinder unit. The BSA Sunbeam would have a cruising speed of 55 to 65mph and fuel consumption of approximately 120 miles per gallon. This was one of the last uses of the Sunbeam marque. The differences between the BSA Sunbeam and Triumph Tigress were entirely cosmetic - the former in polychromatic green paint, also two-tone red and cream, with a BSA badge; the latter in a shell blue with Triumph badging.

First registered on 4th July 1961, this two-owner BSA Sunbeam was taken off the road in 1967 and has been stored in a barn since. The original owner kept the Sunbeam for some five years before it was sold to Mr. Henry Stratford. In totally original condition although in need of restoration, this 175cc BSA is supplied with the original buff logbook and is offered for sale at no reserve.
