Lot Details
1960 BSA 650cc A10 ‘Golden Flash’
Registration no. BAS 869
Frame no. GA 73355
Engine no. DA 9574
Following the success of the A7 twin, BSA naturally introduced a 650cc version, the A10 ‘Golden Flash’, for the 1950 season. Corresponding to the A7 in design, the new model followed its predecessor in being highly successful, its strength and performance finding a market with both solo riders and sidecar users. Again, the A10 was developed over the following decade with swinging-arm suspension in 1954 and a more powerful engine from 1959. Bought in good order by a confirmed BSA enthusiast, BAS 869 was then treated to a full restoration before joining the collection. Lightly used up to 2002, this very presentable twin will be ready for riding, following the obligatory safety checks and is offered with an old-style V5 and other sundry paperwork.
