BSA A50RS ROYAL STAR description

A50RB 2224

I bought this nice little BSA back in 1994, road it for a while and then moved it to the basement where it has stood ever since. I had grand plans of pulling it apart and reversing the groovy custom work that some previous owner had performed but there always seemed to be some other project that fought its way to the top of the list leaving the Royal Star to languish in the corner. The basement is heated and de-humidified so it wasn’t that bad.

The bike has moved about 50 feet in those two decades, all of them last Sunday when it came out to see the light of day.

It was a good running bike back then and the only objection I had to it was its tendency to wet-sump on a regular basis. At this point with a new battery, a good carb cleaning and a little attention to the oil line check valve and it should be ready to ride. After that, bringing the machine out of the seventies, will require a little more work.

Overall, it is a nice bike and should be a fairly easy restoration (if you want to go that direction.) There are a couple of dents in the tank and a scratch across its top. The front wheel is pretty nice while the rear has some rust on the rim. When the seat was recovered they removed most of the bump – my favorite part of the BSA’s of this era.

The triple trees and fork sliders have been chrome plated and the mufflers have been replaced with the shorties that were so popular 40 years ago.

This is a matching number machine and I have a good Washington state title in my name.

If you would to inspect this macnine in person I will be very happy to help arrange a visit. The bike is in Normandy Park, WA, a ten minute drive from the Seattle/Tacoma airport. Also, I am very happy to do all that I can on this end to help in stateside or overseas shipment.

I can deliver the bike to a local shipping company to save you the cost of having it picked up at my residence. If you have any questions at all please feel free to call or e-mail. My cell number is (206)276-9791 and I can be reached up until about 10:00PM (Pacific time zone.).

Attached are all of the photos I have of the bike but I will be happy to photograph any details that you would like to see.

Please be prepared to make a $300 deposit through Pay-Pal, Cashiers Check or Money Order within 48 hours of the end of the auction and pay the balance within 7 days of the end of the auction. I would like to see the bike picked up soon after the sale goes through but might be able to store it for a short time if need be.
