1955 UNIVERSAL B50 METEOR 680CC Supercharged

The Universal motorcycle reflects all that you might expect from Swiss engineering with the build quality being extremely high throughout the entire machine. Approximately 900 of these machines were built between 1950 – 1957. Manufactured in 1954 this machine was registered in England in 1955 (the log book certificate from England comes with it).

Shaft driven, the Universal delivers smooth and articulate power. The engine totally enclosed with an aluminium casing in the same manner as Bugatti. As the deluxe version, it comes with a dual seat with a smart built in carrier system. Restored in 1983 the bike has travelled less than 400 miles since. Numbers correct.
