1928 Sunbeam Model 9


One of the last flat tankers, the Sunbeam model 9 is up there with the greats. An overhead valve 500 with hand change transmission and smaller 20" front wheel to improve handling, this machine will be wonderful fun to ride and significantly quicker than it's brakes can stop.

This example, fitted with Brooklands can and paraded at Dijon, Schotten and Festival of 1000 Bikes sold at Bonhams April 2012 Stafford for £14,375.
