Sunbeam S8 / Citroen 2CV powered












Right – here’s your chance to own one of the coolest bikes on the planet...

It was built a few years back by a mate of mine who now needs space and funds for his next project, so all offers will be carefully considered.
The road tax is free and it is mot exempt but everything works as it should and it runs and rides well. Here’s the spec....


1952 Sunbeam S8 frame.

1975 2CV engine (600cc boxer twin – 33BHP).

Twin 30mm Concentrics (new when built).

Burman GB Gearbox, hand start. (easier than it sounds!).

Norton Clutch.

BSA Group forks and wheels.

19” Avons – Speedmaster/SM.

M20 rear suspension lugs. (Plungers locked – so rigid rear).

Unknown tank, painted in late sixties by Tony Heaton.

Too many Custom made parts to list – Please see pictures or arrange to view.



This is a rare chance to own a one off special, which in my opinion, is realistically priced  - that said, I am told it needs to go.
It is advertised elsewhere, so if your interested don’t hang about. I can relay a message but it may be better to call him on: 
07813 608891 with any questions. 
Cheers
