C.1962 BSA Sunbeam 175, Project, 175cc. Registration number VAY 804 not recorded with DVLA. Frame number not found. Engine number S1478.
The BSA Sunbeam, also sold as the Triumph Tigress, was a scooter designed to have good performance and handling for the motorcycle enthusiast. The entry of the BSA group into the scooter field was announced by Edward Turner in October 1958. The design by Edward Turner drew on Triumph's long experience of building fast motorcycles, and was sold under two brand names to take advantage of established distribution networks. This badge engineering was one of the last uses of the Sunbeam marque. The differences between the BSA Sunbeam and Triumph Tigress were entirely cosmetic - the former in polychromatic green paint, also two-tone red and cream, with a BSA badge; the latter in a shell blue or mimosa and ivory (two tone) with Triumph badging.
The scooter was available with a 250 cc four-stroke twin or 175 cc two-stroke single-cylinder engine. The 250 cc model was discontinued in 1964, the 175 cc model in 1965.
The registration number is not recorded with DVLA and there is no paperwork.
