Matching numbers machine in
nice condition all round
The BSA C15 was the company's first four-stroke unit
construction machine and was a replacement for the indestructible C12 250. The
largest capacity machine that could be ridden on a learner's licence at the
time, it was hugely popular and became, for many, the first real experience of

production from 1958 to 1967 and its buoyant sales helped with BSA’s claim to be
the world's most popular motorcycle.
According to a BSA Owners Club dating certificate on file,
this C15 Star was built in 1961 and was finished in red. It was sold new via E

DVLA correspondence shows that it was issued with its current (non-transferable)
age-related number, 174 XVF, in 2019.
Another BSA Owners Club vehicle report states that the
engine fitted is original to the frame, making this a ‘matching numbers’
machine. It comes with no other history but appears to be in generally good
