Looks to be a very cool Goldie with an interesting history. It should bring a pretty penny.

Another neat old Goldie.

That BB34GS looks interesting with an engine number close to mine. The BSA OC site suggests that the engine is 53 and the frame is 55 (just based on the two numbers in the listing) I know that that is not necessarily a hard and fast guide as BSA did some strange things with engine/frame combinations.

I guess that bikes were just allocated when ordered and shipped, so that a batch of consequetive numbered machines would be unlikely.

It turns out I know that bike. The dispatch records show that indeed it is a matching numbers machine having been sent to the East Coast on 30 June 1955 in Clubmans trim. At some point over the past 59 years it acquired a ZB head but it would be a nice bike to ride as-is, or it could be used for a matching numbers DB Clubman restoration.

Interesting.. but that first bike... "Original Condition" Original to what..? It is a nice bike, but it is also a Bitsa. Alloy front rim and steel rear.. Magdyno with a central oil tank and the regulator mounted to a frame rail..? Etc.. still it may be a good buy as it does have some good parts for sure. Just not "Factory Original" is my take..

And yes the RRT2 was not common here in the States.
