This bike is in just amazing condition built 1967, Undergoing an earlier restoration the BSA Rocket Gold Star is ready to be enjoyed as a daily rider or shown off in your garage with great investment potential. With approx. 1584 ever built and really works well - both as a functional motorcycle as well as an investment vehicle. BSA created a very fast bike (for the time) with good handling fast bike that became 'classic'. Surviving models are in such demand today!
Widely recognised as one of the most desirable of all factory built 'caf√© racers', the Rocket Gold Star arrived in 1962 along with the first of BSA's new unitary construction range. A combination of - mainly - Gold Star cycle parts and the A10 Super Rocket twin-cylinder engine, the newcomer represented the last of the old pre-unit line rather than a new departure, and thus was destined for a relatively short life. The model was offered in a number of different forms and with a host of options relating to controls and equipment. With only Around 1,584 made over a two-year period and today genuine examples are highly sought after.
