Sunbeam 1928 model 8 2712



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.
