1952 Sunbeam S8 Motorcycle

Beautiful Sunbeam S8, 500 cc parallel twin OHC shaft drive bike. Beautiful design by Erling Poppe, love the cast aluminum muffler and finned engine design. I've had it for about 10 years and just finished the restoration. At a point in life now where I need to let go of some things. Clean title in my name. Opening bid is less than what I have into it, not to mention the countless hours in the garage to get it to where it is now. Have many original and new parts from Stewarts Engineering with receipts. Wanted to keep it as original as possible as a survivor bike but I did have all the tin professionally repainted except for the frame and forks. Minor ding to the top of the tank ( from me) between handlebars and fill cap as pictured. Also, imperfect drip mark on rear fender under the seat as pictured (hard to see). Otherwise the paint looks great as shown. Kevin from P.T. Customs (British bike specialist in Burnups Michigan) replaced the final drive gaskets and seals both around the final drive and input shaft, along with all new wiring, new battery, countless other details and getting it to a running state. Will still need fine tuning with the carb/ needle adjustments etc. I've driven it up and down the block a few times for a total of approximately 5 miles total. Has a flat bottom kill switch/ horn button on the right hand set. Still need to find the curved bottom one that mounts directly to the bars as pictured. Also have a new horn and small pile of misc. extra parts and book that will come with the bike. Bike is for sale locally too, any questions feel free to call (616) 874-7130. Cash in person or a certified check mailed prior to pickup. All funds must clear before bike is cleared to leave. Thanks for looking!Recent restoration including all new rear drive seals, completely new wiring throughout
New battery, ignition coil and controls
Newly painted tins tank and headlight
Many new parts from Stewarts Engineering UK
Includes all receipts and book
Starts easily and runs but will still need a little carb adjustment
