Introduced late in 1949, BSA's A10 650cc twin closely followed the basic pattern established by the 500cc A7 while contriving to be almost entirely different in detail. The existing parallel-twin architecture was retained for the new A10, with 360-degree crankshaft and single camshaft at the rear of the cylinder block, as was the four-speed gearbox bolted directly to the crankcase in a form of semi-unitary construction. A conventional separate gearbox was adopted when a swinging-arm frame was introduced in 1954, though the original plunger-suspended model remained in production for a few more years. This late example of the plunger-suspended A10 comes with an old-style continuation logbook issued on 24th May 1966 when it was registered to Harold Parker. Additional documentation consists of an old MoT certificate (expired 1967) and old/current Swansea V5/V5C. Incomplete and partially dismantled, the machine is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.
