1951 BSA B33 500
Engine Number: BB33 - 4282 Frame Number: Correct
$5,000 - $8,000
Provenance: From the ‘Going When Last Ridden’ Barry Pointon Collection
Following the engine design of the 350cc B31, but with a heavier flywheel, the 500cc B33 was a good, solid all-round performer for the day offering a convincing 80mph. Well priced and considered reliable, the B33 sold well and many machines were passed through families as a result of the longevity they offered.
