Property of a deceased's estate
1954 BSA 646cc A10 'Golden Flash'
Registration no. OXW 906
Frame no. CA7 8726
Engine no. DA10 2084
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-unit construction. Like the A7, the A10 was available with either a rigid frame or plunger rear suspension. Strikingly finished in pale beige metallic, the new 650 was named 'Golden Flash', a title that stuck even if it was finished in optional black, as in the case with this example. Perennially popular, the model was updated with the swinging-arm frame and separate gearbox in 1954 and continued in production until 1962. An older restoration, 'OXW 906' was last licensed in October 2006 and will require re-commissioning before further use. The machine is offered with a V5C document.
