Lot 371: 1970 BSA 441cc B44SS
BSA re-vamped its unit-construction single-cylinder range for 1967, the new B25 Starfire and C25 Barracuda models retaining the same basic engine layout as the outgoing C15, but with a sturdier Victor-type crankcase assembly and new ‘square-finned’ alloy cylinder barrel. Inside, there was a stronger one-piece forged crankshaft and, somewhat unusually for a single, a shell-type split big-end bearing. An otherwise identical 441cc version was introduced at the same time, at first under the Victor Roadster name and later as the Shooting Star. Offered for restoration, this B44SS Shooting Star has been in the present ownership for the past 30 years. The machine is offered with old-style logbook and Swansea V5.
