Bikes for Sale

Sunbeam S8 1950 


I’ve owned and ridden this bike for over 25 years but unfortunately it is now is too heavy for me. This is one of the most genuine original Sunbeams you will find; it still runs reliably on the original 6-volt dynamo and distributor ignition system. It is fitted with all the original cycle parts including the correct levers and switches, accessories, horn, lights etc and a period sprung pillion seat. The black paintwork is all very good including the original steel mudguards. The engine has the desirable high compression pistons and rare strengthened valve cover.


The bike has been regularly seen at SOF events and is an increasingly rare original Registration, frame and engine number bike complete with all documentation and manuals etc. Located in Hants but can deliver up to about 75 miles. Realistically priced at £4,400. Phone 07979 285942.


Price £4,000

The bike is a 1951 sunbeam S7 deluxe 6v I did see the bike running 20 odd years ago before it was parked (I know it doesn't count for much now) I acquired it when my uncle passed on, and I started restoring it but due to divorce and loosing my garage I would be best off letting it go.

So far I Have rebuilt the forks with new bushes, seals, seal holders and had the stanchions re-chromed, the brightwork within the forks are new parts as well, the headstock bearings are now the sealed units. I have fitted new stainless inner shrouds for the rear springs and had the outer ones powder coated, then re-greased the springs and put new felt washers in. The wheel bearings were checked cleaned and re greased. I had the front hub and rear drive media blasted and replaced the seals in the rear drive. All the Black parts are powder coated (frame, wheels, kickstand, engine mount hardware, brake pedal etc) the bodywork has been painted ludlow green (I was told it was a good match for the original colour) I also have a new wiring loom and exhaust nuts for it. All parts except the wiring loom and exhaust nuts were purchased through stewart engineering. I have not done anything with the engine or gearbox yet other than drain the gearbox oil but the engine does rotate freely. I have a spare dynamo and there is a box with spare engine, gearbox and rear drive casings a spare frame as well as other parts. The parts I know are missing from the bike are the air cleaner and cover, the toolbox and the tank badges.

I will attach pictures - one is the condition when I got it

I purchased the 1952 S8 which was rebuilt by Robert Beech. This rebuild was fully documented on the site "Classic Glory"., and the articles are still available.The fluids were then all drained and the bike was shipped here to Barbados about 18 years ago, and imported, but never registered here as a vehicle.It has been stored in my workshop since then, and has never been started in Barbados..

Due to downsizing, I am going to have to sell it.

 Very Scarce - 1947 Sunbeam S7 - Price £7,500 - SOLD


An early Sunbeam S7, this is the one made prior to the deluxe – few around. Although they look similar, there are a lot of differences between these bikes and the later deluxe S7.

I have owned the bike a few years but having a clear out and as I have another – so this one is to be sold. I bought it mainly as a guide for the rebuild of my other S7.

This has matching Frame, Engine and gearbox numbers. UK registered but a non-transferrable mark, this came through a dealer in 2017 and I think he sold the original registration

The bike is complete and runs well, very easy to start. I have a short video of this available on request – unless I can post it here. It is a clean bike, not pristine but usable. Still has a 6v system, but everything works.

There are bits that require attention:

  • Tank badges should be blue
  • Speedo should be 80 mph
  • Toolbox is fibre glass – but mudguards and battery boxes are steel.
  • There is a broken fin – a lot of Sunbeams have this, there is a head bolt everyone misses when taking the head off!

Good stuff, it has correct inverted leavers and internal throttle, and the sought after ‘twist dip’. Fuel tank has the rare screw cap. Engine seems pretty oil tight, it has the additional sump plate for added oil capacity, and the original 276 carb.

It has the later cam chain tensioner on it, don’t think the early spring tensioners worked very well. It also has the later dynamo – the early ones had a short dynamo, but not many of these around now.

This is a good usable bike, if you need to get it totally original you can do this as a rolling restoration. I think I have priced it with this in mind.

Bike is in Scotland, Brechin area – collection only but I can help with local delivery if required.
