This fabulous Sunbeam S7 motorcycle combination is the most stylish of all 1950s sidecar outfits. It was a design classic in its day with its innovative shaft-drive and superb Sunbeam workmanship. It was Great Britain’s answer to America’s Harley Davidson and Germany’s
BMW outfits.

It's also a very practical classic to own and use 50 years after it was made. There’s active club support and an excellent dedicated Sunbeam specialist and spares supplier.
