BSA C10 250cc 1950.  Motorcycle Rebuild Project.

With V5C and Transferable Registration Number.


A rare opportunity to purchase an original classic British lightweight 250cc single.


Bike was last used on the road in 1973.  It has been in dry storage ever since.  Must now be sold to fund another project.


Needs restoration, please see photographs.


Complete with old Buff Log Book, old V5 registration document and current V5C document.  Also a May 1973 tax disc.


Original 3 letter 3 number registration number which is transferable.


The bike was partly dismantled for a rebuild many years ago, but the rebuild was not completed.  Original bolt-on rear chain-stay is missing and has been replaced by 2 steel tubes as a temporary measure just to make the bike mobile, should be easy enough to find a replacement.  A small number of lesser parts are missing, most of which should be readily available from classic bike parts suppliers or eBay.


Has original Smiths Chronometric Speedo in tank, Lucas Dynamo and Lucas headlight switch.  Crankshaft turns freely.  Original Amal pre-monoblock carburettor.  The aluminium cases should polish up easily.  Ideal rebuild project.


ZC10 Frame number and engine number.  First registered March 1950.


In my ownership since 1981.


An original BSA Instruction Book is included.

BSA illustrated parts catalogue, manual and service sheets all supplied on CD. 


Viewing welcome by arrangement prior to close of auction.


I respectfully remind prospective bidders that you bid to buy NOT bid to view.


Introduced by BSA in 1939 the C10 was typical of BSA’s small to medium, comfortable, easy to ride machines of the period, and was continued virtually unchanged after the war, apart from the fitting of telescopic front forks.  With a single cylinder, air-cooled, side valve four stroke 249cc engine, this bike should make for a straight forward rebuild.
