Considered by many to be the best Beezer ever, the BSA Shooting Star was a street-based twin of the Victor 441 – it was even originally called the Victor Roadster before a name change for US dealers.
The 441cc engine produced a solid 30 horsepower – combine that with just 320 pounds of weight and you got a bike that was capable of hitting 95 miles per hour. In 1968, the year of this bike, the Shooting Star became BSA’s most popular export model. For more on the Shooting Star, check out this write-up from Motorcycle Classics.
This specific BSA Shooting Star is in “very good, unrestored condition for the year”. It runs great but has a little oil leak (duh), the speedo doesn’t work, and the chrome has some surface rust.
