Important BSA Racing Motorcycle - 1952 Roland Pike BSA 350cc Gold Star

Frame number RHP4. Built in period by the talented engineer and racer, Roland Pike, Head of BSA development in the early 1950's. Roland entered 168 race events over the period of 1936 to 1953, many on his self engineered bikes and gained quite a lot of success. He was at the forefront and responsible for BSA's 1954 Daytona entry and 5 of the top six finishers were BSA's under the wing of Roland Pike. This is one of two machines built in 1952 by Roland Pike, the other being a race BSA A7 Star Twin. Looking at this machine there are hints of a Norton "Featherbed" frame but with single front down tube rather than the duplex style. The motor is from a 1952 BSA Gold Star confirmed by an original green log book with registration number OS8496. The bike was entered and ridden by Roland Pike in the 1952 IOM TT number 31. In 1954 it was entered by Geoff Duke with the pilot being Dennis Lashmar number 62. Dennis campaigned the BSA in 1954 at the Dutch TT, Assen, Belgium GP and German GP. This is an Important period racing BSA presented in excellent condition and supplied with extensive providence. The bike has been featured in Mick Walker's book and Don Morley's book, both supplied with the bike along with a copy of Roland Pike's own book. Lovely period photographs, original drawings and correspondence are also presented in the bike's history file. Eligible for Goodwood and Classic race events or a machine which would grace any collection. A little piece of BSA history. Please call for further details. Shipping and Delivery arranged.
