3. Find a suitable spot on a suitable wall or door.
4. Position the sign thoughtfully using strips of masking tape if necessary.

"The ultimate Rockers' ride."
Regardless, no one is doubting that a BSA DB Gold Star is a true classic in its own lifetime, and so it was only natural that when we unearthed a batch of these "tin" signs, we'd want to hang one on our own wall, and share the rest with you.
The DB Gold Stars were launched in the autumn of 1955. There were two engine capacities: a 349cc model good for around 30 - 32bhp @ 7500 rpm, and a 499cc version that generated around 40 - 42bhp @ 7000rpm. The top speeds were, respectively, around 100mph and 110mph. Both bikes were air-cooled pushrod singles.
The DBs were offered in scrambles, touring, clubmans and road racing forms. The bikes acquitted themselves well and brought home a lot of competition bacon.
Ruggedly built, easy to understand, challenging to ride and with an unmistakeable exhaust twitter, British Rockers soon latched onto the Goldies and made them a familiar sight on the cafe racer scene in the late 1950s and 1960s (and for that matter, right up to the present day).
The size of our Gold Star sign is a generous 300mm x 410mm, which is roughly the size of two A4 sheets of paper. The image is 1,400 dpi, which is way better than most, if not all, of the lesser quality stuff on the market. And the edges are folded to help preserve those delicate finger nails.
Also, these DB Gold Star signs are printed direct to metal in the traditional way.
Will you like it when you see it? We think so. If we didn't, we wouldn't be flogging 'em.
Our metal signs will make your garage just that little bit cosier, and will make life just that little bit better and will give you an extra excuse to get away from your "significant other" for a few private spannering moments.
Or just throw away the TV set and prop one of these signs in its place. It's a lot better to look at than most of the television rubbish produced these days.
If you've got a BSA DB Gold Star, you're pretty much required to have one of these signs. And if you haven't got a Goldie, this might help remind you to get one, or at least try one before you croak.
We package these signs as well as we reasonably can, and we despatch as soon as possible (usually within 24 hours of ordering, and very rarely longer than 2-3 days if stock has run out and needs to be re-supplied).
Either way, we'll keep you posted. And if for any reason we can't supply your sign, we'll tell you without unnecessary delay and will refund your money in full.
And remember this if you will:
