BSA’s ‘Trichrome Special’ was so named because of the arrival of chrome in the cycle industry. The chrome on this example is in good condition, and the paintwork is also in good unrestored original condition, with some of the box lining intact. The original pedal rubbers are worn, but you can see the BSA name on them. One of the original handlebar grips is missing, replaced by a similar reproduction. The original grip needs some glue as the outer layer is loose; it retains the BSA rifles logo. You can also see the BSA logo on the hubs and gear trigger. The machine is in good mechanical condition and ready to ride.
