The successor to their legendary Gold Star single, BSA’s Cyclone was also a 500cc – but it was a twin cylinder.
For more on the Cyclone, check out this period review from Cycle World. As they put it in reference to moving on past the Gold Star, “The diehards will say that there is no substitute for the single, and they may be right; but in the long run the twin will have the last word.”
This example (VIN: A50B291) was restored by the seller in 2016 – he says that it was “nut and bolt full cosmetically and mechanically,” adding that “the level of quality of paintwork, details, originality, and mechanical condition should meet the needs of the most detailed collector.” Do you agree? Find this Cyclone for sale in West Bend, Wisconsin with a BIN of $8,300 or best offer here on eBay.
I should also that the seller has got a restored BSA Lightning worth checking out as well – you can find that with a BIN of $6,750 or best offer here on eBay.
