1922 550cc Blackburne.  Excellent vintage project

This Blackburne motorcycle is being sold as a non-runner, needing attention..

It had been nicely restored, but has lain in covered storage where time has visited it with the usual consequences -no spark, broken oil pump body, perished tyres.

The petrol tank looks lovely, with real gold leaf lining and lettering, but needs the tank re-lining inside - the original pet-seal liner has gone tacky.

The nickel plating has corroded in one place on the front rim. Tail pipe is missing off silencer.


This is an excellent project for someone wanting to acquire a quality rare early vintage flat tank motorcycle, at the right price.

With a small amount of work, you will be flying up Sunrising on next years Banbury Run.
