Sunbeam 1927 500cc Model 5
The Wolverhampton based firm of John Marston LTD earned fame for their superb bicycles in the early years of the century.
In 1912 their first motorcycle was presented, a 350cc sidevalve model.
Soon Sunbeam motorcycles gained fame for their very high workmanship, their speed and reliability.
The TT was won in 1920 and 1922.
The model presented here is equipped with fully enclosed front and rear chaincases.
The engine character can be described as "giving an explosion at every lamp post".
A perfect touring machine, suitable for the odd high speed stretch.
