The very first production BSA Rocket 3. A unique piece of motorcycling history. This bike was used as a development bike at Small Heath from 1969 to 1974 and then moved to Triumph Meriden works 1974 to 1977.

The bike is in very good condition and runs well. I have decided it’s now time to sell after owning it for the last 10 years.
loads of interesting paperwork with this bike including copies of the original hand written production sheet, old log book and verification by the TR3OC and Vintage motorcycle club. The bike also won Best Rocket 3 at the 50th Beezumph celebration at Anglesey in 2018 and features in several magazine articles.
