The last version of the B50 was badged Triumph TR5MX, still the Bsa B50 Mx but as there were no other BSA's being sold they called it a Triumph so they could sell it through the Triumph dealers. Should have the ugliest twin exhausts going on the Right hand side one above the other.

Cycle Trader shows two for sale - one as a non-running project bike for $949 and another fully restored (says "new") from Baxter Cycle for $7495

Of course value is only based upon what a buyer is willing to pay and there is no way for any of us to guess accurately without knowing the market for this type of bike in your area and the exact shape the machine in is.

For Connecticut, the $949 is about right for a complete but non-running bike of this class and the $7495 is very high. I wouldn't expect to get more than $3500 to $4000 for an excellent, running one (though the one from Baxter is probably concourse quality and way out of my league).

There is another one there in my neck of the woods for $5500. That is a bit of a price stretch, too, but the picture sure makes it look nice. It sounds similar to your bike since it is advertized as having the original tires still on it and in good shape.

Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.
