Post Sale Update: This Starfire sold for $2,565 after 20 bids on eBay in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The B25 (known as the Starfire) was basically BSA’s twin to the Triumph TR25. They weren’t revolutionary, but the classic British style has aged nicely and it has now evolved into a pretty vintage runabout. This example has been sitting for two years, but the cosmetics are great (minus the sidecover decals) and it won’t take much to get it running again.

This example (VIN: MOV487F) was acquired by the seller in 1998, then brought back to “roadworthy condition for enjoyable riding” by Steve Collins of Collins Cycle Services in Sutersville, Pennsylvania. The work included a NOS steel gas tank and a side cover. The original handlebars are included, however they’ve bene replaced by smaller bars. It currently has 3,679 miles and it’s ready to go except for the tires, which show dry rot and should be replaced.
