Restored Model 8 twin exhaust model 8 350 single

90% original machine. Comes with a known history back to 1948. Was originally delivered to Malaysia and like many bikes delivered there was repatriated to Australia by aircrew associated with the RAAF Butterworth base. Includes original Malaysian registration document. Restoration completed in 2017.

Runs beautifully and ticks over nicely – see video. A professional quality restoration which would have taken hundreds of hours and lots of experience. Most amateur restorers would not be able to restore a bike like this and get it to run reliably.

Sunbeams were an expensive, hand built motorcycle. It would have been delivered to someone wealthy when new.
