Page 143. 1957 Sunbeam S7 Deluxe Sidecar Outfit. SOLD

1957 Sunbeam S7 Deluxe Combination

Excellent Condition. Runs Well.

Taxed and MOT’d and ready to use…

I bought this beauty from a friend. After getting a taste for fresh-air motoring taking his son out in this outfit, he’s now bought a 1920s Morris Cowley tourer so he can take the rest of his family with him.

This fabulous Sunbeam S7 motorcycle combination is the most stylish of all 1950s sidecar outfits. It was a design classic in its day with its innovative shaft-drive and superb Sunbeam workmanship. It was Great Britain’s answer to America’s Harley Davidson and Germany’s BMW outfits.

It’s also a very practical classic to own and use 50 years after it was made. There’s active club support and an excellent dedicated Sunbeam specialist and spares supplier (details below).

The S7 Deluxe is fitted with a sidecar brake. And, in case you also wish to use it as a solo, there’s additional solo gearing worm and drive included in the sale. A handlebar screen is also included.

There’s lots of old paperwork, invoices, handbook, etc. It’s taxed and MOT’d and has its V5C and old cardboard logbook.

Its original registration EHM 282 is transferable if you want to cash in on its value (probably around £1000). Though it’s obviously nice to see a classic motorcycle still retaining this essential part of its history.

This wonderful machine is ready to use. Delivery is available worldwide. If you have any questions please email or phone me as below.

This means that it is not my responsibility,

BUT I can put you in touch with delivery people and organize collection;

you liaise with them direct re delivery and pay them separately.

Great Britain – delivery would be around £120 for this motorcycle combination to main parts of England;

extra to extremities such as Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, etc (and may take longer to arrive)

(Please email your postcode if you want to confirm price).

THIS BARGAIN PRICE DELIVERY IS ON A PART-LOAD BASIS.

(Collection when they’re in my area; delivery when in yours).

If you want it fast, please organize your own collection. It’s probably easiest on a car transporter: lots of companies advertise on ebay delivering classic vehicles. They’re cheapest when you find one who’ll do it on their return journey.

Europe – delivery is probably around €750 to Germany, Austria, France, Italy, etc. I can recommend two companies.

I recently sent my 1964 Dnepr Outfit to Australia and it cost £1200.

You must communicate with me before the end of the auction to discuss payment and shipping options.

AFTER PURCHASE: Please email me your phone numbers; I prefer to speak to all purchasers personally.

I do everything I can to make your purchase a pleasurable experience.

I’ve been selling obscure vintage vehicles on ebay since 2002.

Sharing similar interests, I’ve become good friends with many of my customers.

VEHICLE CONDITION: Vintage vehicles are wonderful beasts

– but each has an individual personality and they sometimes have bad days just like you and me.
You will need basic mechanical skills (or a local mechanic) to use one on a regular basis.

Two-strokes invariably need basic servicing before starting them, if they’ve been left to stand for more than 3 weeks or so.

These are rare vehicles whose values are not necessarily based on running order.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE ABOVE, PLEASE DO NOT BID.
