The Sunbeam Motorcycle

£45.00

Product description

Robert Gordon Champ
Haynes Publishing Group, Yeovil, 1980.
Hardback; 175 x 240 mm; black boards with gold titles on spine; 206 pages. Original unclipped dust jacket. Profusely illustrated with black and white photographs, etc.
The book is in good condition. The binding is sound. There is an extensive brown stain across the bottom of the inside of the front of the dust jacket that has marked the front cover of the book underneath. There is a thin strip of horizontal tanning across the top of the inside of the jacket with a small tear at the top of the back flap. There is a small area of brown staining on the bottom edges of the leaves, and light foxing of the top edges, all visible when the book is closed.
Sunbeam Cycles made by John Marston Limited of Wolverhampton was a British brand of bicycles and, from 1912 to 1956 motorcycles. On John Marston's death after the First World War it was bought by Nobel Industries, Nobel became ICI. Associated Motor Cycles bought it in 1937 then BSA bought Sunbeam in 1943. Sunbeam Cycles is most famous for its S7 balloon-tyred shaft-drive motorcycle with an overhead valve in-line twin engine.
In this book the author follows the career of John Marston and those who succeeded him, taking the story from the early formative years of the company through to the advent of the post-World War II twins that created such a sensation when they appeared on the market soon after the manufacture of motorcycles for the civilian market was resumed. The story of the Sunbeam bicycle is included because its manufacture was closely intertwined with that of the motorcycles in the early days. The book includes an appendix with restoration information.
