Sunbeam 1928 Model 8 350 cc OHV frame # C 1411 engine # K 1401
The first OHV production Sunbeams were listed as the model 8 (350cc) and 9 (500cc) in 1924.
The model 8 with bore/stroke dimensions of 70×90 mm was an excellent sporty tourer, but stayed somewhat in the shadow of its more glamorous big brother.
New features for 1928 were enclosed mechanical engine lubrication with adjustable sight feed and a new type of silencer. 1928 was the last year that Sunbeams had flat tanks.
Minor missing item on this Model 8 is the chain guard.
This quality sports machine is an older restoration.
