That was the estimate Bonhams had in mind for this piece of classic bike history when it came up for auction at the firm’s October sale at Stafford. A very respectable 57bhp was claimed with the maximum speed touching mph. But Hobbs was unsatisfied and took the bike to Ted “Barry” Baragwanath pictured left. Baragwanath, a well-known and well-respected Brooklands sidecar racer and tuner who also ran a motor repair business in North London and was noted for wearing a winged collar with his riding gear coaxed the horsepower up to around 65 from This was achieved by increasing the compression ratio to 8.
Moby was now able to hit mph in top gear 3rd , and reach mph in second.

Intended as a sporting machine capable of competing in virtually all disciplines, it was supported by a range of options that enabled the owner to tailor it to their needs.. The new machine was initially offered as a cc, although a cc version joined it later in the year. The engine was derived from the B-Series machines but featured an alloy barrel and head. Drive was via a standard BSA gearbox with both units being housed in a plunger frame equipped with telescopic front forks.
Motor Cycling magazine carried out a two part test of the new machine in May , finding it to be capable of 78mph with good acceleration and road holding in its ‘standard’ touring trim and capable of more than 90mph when prepared to ‘Clubman’ specification. A great deal of interest was generated and the necessary machines for homologation for the Clubman’s TT were in the hands of customers by March.
This began a period of utter domination in which a Goldstar won the event for the next seven years until the cc Clubman’s class was abandoned in

Nigel Clark, pics by Chris Langton BSA Poster for the Spitfire Whether the Americans truly desired the specification of machinery that we sent them, or whether it was merely the interpretation of the factory stylists in their smoky offices of the 50s remains arguable. However, one thing is for sure, these days in particular, that era of Trans Atlantic styling is eye-catchingly different… BSA Spitfire Scrambler In this old motorcycle game of ours, fate can sometimes play a decent hand by laying in front of us a certain path, which eventually results in a machine that originally was not quite what we had planned.
Well, OK, not literally, but had it not been for a pal in need of a replacement alternator for his car, Dave would not have received the remains of a BSA engine in exchange for the required electrical component. Born and bred in the villages on the east side of Lincoln city — which, if development continues, will soon become simply suburbs — he was fortunate to live on a farm and have a father with a keen interest in motorcycles.
The farm, by its very nature, had a plentiful supply of old tractors, lorries and cars too, all of which formed a very thorough grounding in the workings of the internal combustion engine, transmission and the other mechanical systems connected to vehicular forward and reverse of course motion. Indeed, as well as another couple of tasty machines in his workshop which will perhaps grace these pages in future issues, there is a classic Mk 1 Escort Mexico, a superb but presently body-less Morris Eight and an immaculate, scarlet, convertible XJS Jaguar in his drive.
His first road machine was the now much sought after 50cc FS1-E Yamaha , followed by a cc Honda on which he passed his test. Several other everyday machines passed through his hands but were of little interest as he soon realised he preferred the older machines. His reward for rescuing his friend from the darkness was the remains of a B31 chopper frame and cc Shooting Star engine and gearbox. It had thrown a con-rod sometime in the past and though it had damaged the big-fin barrel, the cases were fortunately intact.
At this time, Dave had no plans to build a Spitfire Scrambler and merely set about rebuilding the engine. The crank was actually in good condition but Dave had it ground to first under size thou on the big ends and —20 thou on the mains, obtaining the required sized bearings from Kidderminster Motorcycles.

Have no idea why it is a 51 plate The Not so goods: It handles very well and does not affect the handling. Overall this is a great entry level Ariel that looks amazing. Really depends on how fussy you are.
Engine numbers had a prefix indicating the model type along the lines above such as 3T, 5T, 6T, T, T, 3TA, 5TA etc. This was followed by a number from the list below.
You can purchase the appearance and performance of a Gold Star for a lot less than the asking price of the genuine article. Many people have created their own replicas over the years, so if you’re buying on a budget and are not too fussed about originality then a hotted-up B31 or 33 could be ideal. Ask to see the supporting paperwork and talk to the specialist who did the work if looking at the latter. That same advice holds doubly true if you are spending big money on a ‘real’ Goldie. It’s very unusual for a pukka factory-built Gold Star to turn up in a barn covered in cobwebs these days, so most of the ones offered for sale should be known to the club and come with full documentation and a detailed history.
It is not at all unusual to come across examples with replacement engines or genuine DB motors fitted to later frames – remember that many Gold Stars have been raced and all are likely to be modified to match a previous owner’s whims, so they may be far from standard or original. Very few Goldies appear in small ads; buying from a dealer means you’ll have a chance to ride the bike before splashing your cash, but the majority pop up at auction.
If you’re going to bid then do your homework beforehand and check the bike’s provenance and recent history carefully.

It has not run since last summer, but it should start up with only the minimum servicing required, and will pass a new MOT. The Mosquito enjoys a good reputation for reliability and power. The engine was rebuilt by the previous owner. However, it was also built under license in France and Britian. Garelli worked for other motorcycle manufacturers from to during which time he won a competition organized by the Italian Army to design a motorcycle with which he used his cc split-single engine.
After WWI Garelli began to produce motorcycles in his own factory. The Garelli cc split-single stayed in production until and made a major impact in racing. By his motorcycle interest was waning and his factory began producing military equipment leaving motorcycle production completely. The Model 38A began in as a clip-on engine for a bicycle frame. The concept was a huge success over two million of the engines were sold worldwide.
Power was delivered to the back wheel via a friction wheel and was able to reach a top speed of 20mph. They opened a branch in France too.

Beautifully-executed Triumph-powered drag bike was a crowd favourite. And there sure was a diversity of people and machines at Cannington on Sunday, when the Vintage Motorcycle Club of Western Australia staged its annual swap meet at the Cannington Showgrounds. In the pavilion, bikes ranged from ancient British to exotic European and classic Japanese.
Outside, there were people selling tired-but-repairable Ducati MHR fairings, rusty BSA frames, plastic Kawasaki KX fenders, operational Rickman-framed Montesa dirt bikes, and art-with-a-welder motorcycle-shaped sculptures. And that was just the machinery. The people were even more diverse. Old-as-granite British guys with white hair and prim accents rubbed shoulders with middle-aged Aussie blokes with short hair, long beards, colourful vocabularies, bulk tattoos and flannelette shirts.
