BSA 1935 349 cc OHV De Luxe “R 35 – 4 “ frame # E 3752 engine # E 4435
With the introduction of the 1935 range two almost identical new De Luxe ohv singles are brought out.
The R 35-3 is a 63x 80mm 249 cc single and the R 35-4 is a 71x88mm 349 cc model.
With each of these models the valve gear is similar to that of the OHV twin.
The pushrods are enclosed in a large-diameter tube.
The inlet valve is all enclosed and lubricated but the exhaust spring are exposed for better cooling.
The gear driven magdyno is situated behind the cylinder and the lubrication is effected by a twin gear pump.
There’s a tell-tale on the timing cover. Other features include a quickly adjustable shock absorber, a steering damper and a four speed gearbox with foot change mechanism.
These De Luxe OHV models have been catalogued for only two years and not too many have survived.
This good-looking and surprisingly powerful sports mount has been finely restored
