B.S.A. Star Rider Sports Cruiser 1950s
- Manufacturer: BSA
- Size: 58 cm
Today you will find a number of bikes which try to revive the elegant lines and classy looks of 1950s and 1960s sports-cruising bikes. And it is no real surprise taking in consideration how beautiful such bikes were.
Just take some looks at our marvelous B.S.A. Star Rider Sports Cruiser!
The two types of blue colour are forming a magnificent paintjob on frame and extra wide mudguards.
All parts are original from the rubber grips, to the iconic crankset, the brakes or the BSA pedals.
Birmingham Small Arms was a company well known for weaponry and motorcycles. But in the years of the British cycling boom, during the 1930s to 1950s, their bicycles were up there with the other famous high quality rides of its time. In fact, their chainsets were a favourite of many 6-day racers!
On the technical side, our Star Rider shows some nice features, such as the old faithful Sturmey Archer 3-speed hub in the rear and the dynamo hub in the front which was a pretty modern component.
As if this bike would not look impressive enough, it also sounds amazing. The large bell (brand: King of the Road) gives an impression of how a bike bell has to sound when it comes from the country of Big Ben.
This stylish sports cruiser is a real gentleman's way of transportation. »See Details
