This 88-year-old treasure has been well looked-after throughout her life.
Her paintwork is original, with some of the box lining still showing. Although cosmetically unrestored and despite old paint, she is very presentable.
Sunbeams have such a regal style that they command attention wherever they go. You’re never short of conversation riding such a splendid bicycle in public.
She recently visited Tony, my Sunbeam mechanic, who…
rebuilt her rear wheel;
fitted new tyres and tubes;
replaced the repair kit bottle inside the handlebar grip;
installed a blue dress-guard for the rear wheel;
and provided a full service.
I took her for a spin along Rottingdean beach; you can see a ten second video below. The two speed gears change easily and she provided a beautiful ride.
It’s a testament to the quality of the Sunbeam marque – one of Great Britain’s most renowned manufacturers – that a machine built during the 1920s will still provide reliable daily transportation nearly a century down the road.
If you feel a 88-year-old bicycle would be a nice addition to your family, this 1924 Golden Sunbeam for Ladies is now ready for a new owner to cherish her.

She is easy to fall in love with, and is ready to jump on and ride.

Worldwide delivery is available. Shipping to Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, etc costs £250.
