Background For Identification:

The 498cc Triumph CTT was introduced at the Olympia Show in 1929 and created much interest among the buying public for this popular motorcycle. Closely following the lines of the existing 350cc model CO, the model CTT was road tested by MotorCycling in March 1930 and fully satisfied the tester. The motorcycle was particularly noticed for the design of handlebars, the first to adopt the layout suggested by the Standardization Committee of the Manufacturers Union. Twistgrip controls were provided for both throttle and magneto advance.

1947 489cc Sunbeam S7 £SOLD

 

Manufacturer Background

From 1943, The Sunbeam Brand was owned by BSA having been previously owned by Associated British Motorcycles who had bought up the original “Marston” Sunbeam business.

 

Model Background

The Model S7 was the first of the “New” Sunbeams; featuring the sleek lines and balloon tyres, this Erring Poppe designed machine drew inspiration from car technology.

 

The S7, often confused with the S7 Deluxe, was designed to be a quiet low maintenance machine and this particular model was first launched in 1947. Only 2100 units were manufactured and the majority were exported, making it considerably more desirable to collectors than the more common S7 Deluxe (Green) and the lighter S8 (Black).

 

Description

The Frame/Engine Nos match Factory records which show that this particular machine was one of the early batch of machines to be exported to South Africa in 1947, before being returned to the factory for modification. It was then re-exported to India in 1949.

It was imported to the UK about 20 years ago and remains in a non-running condition awaiting restoration and is currently NOT UK Registered.

On inspection the motorcycle is presented in Black which is correct for this model. It appears to have no modifications and remains in good “original” condition. The tinware is correct, except for the rear mudguard which should be valanced on the S7 and therefore may have been replaced at some time. The handlebars are also not original as they lack the original internal controls.

The engine is free/kicks over and currently has a non-original Indian carburettor/air cleaner.

 

Other Observations

This bike is very rare and in our opinion has the potential, after restoration, to be far more valuable than the S7 Deluxe or S8.
