No Reserve: 1968 BSA 441 Shooting Star

This is from the site Bring a Trailer ( ...

This 1968 BSA Shooting Star resided in a private collection for approximately 29 years prior to the seller’s acquisition last year. Shortly after purchasing the bike, he installed two new tires, a new battery, and a new Amal carburetor. The charging system was also upgraded with a modern rectifier, and an estimated 80 miles have been added since the work was completed. Power is provided by a 441cc single mated to a four-speed gearbox, and this B44 is now being offered at no reserve with a clean California title in the seller’s name. Finished in Peony Red, the bike features a 4-gallon fuel tank and color-matching side covers. Pitting is evident in the original chrome, and the factory-applied decals and emblems are present. New foam has been installed underneath the seat cover. The fiberglass fuel tank remains uncoated, though the seller has only run the bike on ethanol-free fuel. New Avon Roadmaster tires and tubes were installed on the wire wheels last year. The 441cc OHV single is equipped with a new Amal Concentric carburetor and sends power through a four speed manual gearbox. Stamping B253 is visible on the left side of the engine case, and the seller’s riding video is shown below.
