The Marston Sunbeam Club & Register


Welcome to another incarnation of the Marston Sunbeam Club & Register website. This new version is now fully responsive so even if you are viewing on your smart phone or a giant monitor it should still look good.

Take a trip round the site and you will find a whole host of new stuff. The technical article section has been expanded, we have added a full blown shop where publications and regalia can be purchased, the events pages contain galleries and videos, there is a serchable index of Beaming and last but not least we are continuing the process of documenting the Sunbeam Models.

2018 Cannonball run

Many members will have read about Kevin Waters’ exploits in completing his second Cannonball run on his 1915 machine. It was a great result and actually Kevin was tantalizingly close to winning his class. He is convinced that he now has the knowledge to ensure a Sunbeam first place the next time the bike is entered. The 1931 cut off has been changed to 1929 which will make the older machines more competitive. Understandably Kevin cannot commit to another run but has very generously made the offer of his fully prepared 1915 machine to a Club member to complete the run in September 2018. The Club has also agreed to support the entrant with a contribution towards the preparation of the machine. The member will also benefit from Kevin’s knowledge and experience gained from his two successful runs. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and will be a great experience for the lucky member as well as great publicity for the marque.

Coast to Coast Cannonball 2016 Success

Well another success for Kevin Waters on the Cannonball run this time on a 1915 Sunbeam!

"This last Cannonball was much harder than the first, the bikes capability improved a lot from 1915 to 1931. But it was still an amazing adventure, not to be missed. I wonder how many 1915 Sunbeams have made it all the way across the USA in under their own power, often in extreme weather conditions and crossing mountain ranges at 11000ft, not many I should think! "

Congratulations to Kevin and again to Chris Odling who helped prepare the bike for the epic ride. Here he is demonstrating the cruise control.
