Sunbeam 1928 Model 8 350 cc OHV frame # C 1391 engine # 273/23250
The first OHV production Sunbeams were listed as the model 8 (350cc) and 9 (500cc) in 1924.
The model 8 with bore x stroke dimensions of 70 x 90 mm was an excellent sporty tourer, but stayed somewhat in the shadow of its more glamorous big brother.
1928 was the last year that Sunbeams had flat tanks; a new feature for the year was that the oil pump was now a Sunbeam mechanical pump inside a shallow bulge on the timing case.
In previous years an external Best and Lloyd pump had been fitted.
This machine is an older restoration in very good condition.
