1955 BSA 646cc A10 Golden Flash Project
Registration no. 336 ARA
Frame no. CA7 14842
Engine no. CA10 7976
A new 650cc twin joined BSA's 500cc A7 model in 1949, the latter's engine being revised along the lines of the new design at the same time. 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. Named 'Golden Flash', the new 650 was strikingly finished in pale beige metallic livery. The model was updated with the swinging-arm frame and separate gearbox for 1955 and continued in production until 1962. Offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed, this incomplete and partially dismantled example comes with old/current Swansea V5/V5C documents. No reserve.
