BSA C11G -- In search of !!!

Hello Gents,
I am posting because after a patch of tough sledding; adjusting to life post-war/combat injuries, and finally shook loose from my succubus ex-wife and I can look at replacing the lost horses in my stable.
The first, and most important for me, to get back is the BSA C11G that I had. I know I cannot get the one that I previously owned back, but I would like to get one very similar. ---I am looking for a BSA C11G from years 1939-1946 (I used to own a '46.) They made 2 versions of this machine: a 4spd gear-box with a plunger style rear suspension and a 3spd gear-box with a rigid frame. I am looking for the version with the 3spd box and the rigid frame.
So I'm putting the call out to all of my DTT Brethren--If you happen to come across one of these machines, as long as it is in the United States, is complete, and has a clean, transferable title, I would be most appreciative if you guys could kick the lead my way. This bike is like a spirit animal for me, it's a very happy thing for me to be able to post this and think that I might be able to get one of my favorite things back again. Thanks for reading guys. Happy Holidays.

== I am located in central Pennsylvania


--Attached is a photo of the '46 BSA C11G that I previously owned and was unfortunately parted with. Was a beauty to me.

Glad to hear you're getting back on your feet after some life crap. I'll keep an eye open, I'm in Canada but shop stateside a lot so if I see one I'll def. send you a message on it.

@Maritime, Thank you, I really appreciate it man. Perhaps you can lay some knowledge on me regarding the pain in the ass factor if I were to buy a motorcycle owned and located in Canada; I really do not know anything about the process.

a bike that old is pretty easy from what I've read. I've imported 3 bikes from USA into Canada and it was pretty easy, as long as they are 15 years old or older there is just some paperwork to fill out and taxes to pay. I know newer stuff can be rejected from importation into the states but older stuff shouldn't be bad.

Your location might help. I'm in East TN and will put out your search at our vintage motorcycle club meet tomorrow night. I inow that a member passed and had over 40 bikes that the widow is slowly selling.

Let's chase down the one you sold - where did it go? New owner won't part with it?

Hey guys, firstly, thank you all.. I really appreciate the gumption. @pidjones I updated the OP to include location; thank you for pointing that out man.
@Tim The older gentleman who purchased the bike from me kinda vanished.. tried his phone after these years and got nothing.

In Ontario, with the VIN you could run a used vehicle info search which would give you the current owner. Maybe there’s a similar service covering your BSA.

But in the meantime... the hunt will continue.
