I'm looking for a Gold Star for my retirement. Over the years I've had many old bikes, Sports cars and boats as projects.
When I first started riding Goldies and Velocettes were cheap but not suited for a daily commute across London (47 sets of lights etc.) so I had Triumph twins.
Now living in France I see they are rare here.
What do the guys here think about this one ?
The info says :
Jante alu borrani racing
Frein 190mm double came Eddy Dow
Magnéto racing refaite à neuf en Angleterre(Dave Lindsley)
Réservoir alu lyta
Embrayage a courroie Bob Newby racing
Piston 1 ère cote
Té de fourche Eddy Dow superleggera
Selle artisanale US spécifique gold star racing
Visserie inox polie
Embiellage Jawa (solidité et couple)
Trés belle preparation,machine sympa,fiable et puissante.
Embiellage is crank ... why use a Jawa crank ?
I've asked for numbers and the reply I got was :
Numero carte grise et cadre:CB 324812
Carte Grise is registration log book and cadre is frame.
I always understood the frame and engine numbers were not matched ?
