Mitchell collection - Bike 14
Make and Model: BSA B40 GR
Year of manufacture: 1968
Military Reg 35 AX 63
Dispatch date: 26/04/1968
This GR was received by CVD Ashchurch from the BSA factory on the 29/04/1968.
It was first brought into service on the 06/08/1969, when it was shipped to RAF Germany based in Bruggen and attached to 431MU.(Maintance Unit)
This is where it spent its military life and was disposed of in June 1979
I acquired this first contract GR in March 2022. It was previously owned by a Bristol based owner for some 20+ years.
I was alerted to this first contract GR being for sale via a really close friend, who infact had previously owned it.
I have improved it, by fitting NOS rear tyre, inner tube, NOS Wiring loom, carb spacer and hose, NOS Girling rear suspension units, battery cover, Sump bash plate and plethora of the correct sizes of nuts and bolts and other things I can't remember.
