Lot 031: 1950 BSA A10 GOLDEN FLASH

Fine Historic Motorcycles, H&H Sales Limited (24 June 2006)

Announced in October 1949 the A10 Golden Flash, although sharing a resemblance to the existing BSA 500 twin, was an entirely new design and was to form the basis for a range of machines that became highly regarded by enthusiasts culminating in the Rocket Gold Star of 1962. The early Golden Flash was available in both rigid and plunger framed form, the majority of former initially going to the export markets. This example is described by the vendor as being in good condition mechanically with very good paint and brightwork, having been restored recently The wheels have been rebuilt with British chromed rims, stainless steel spokes and new tyres have recently been fitted. At some stage in the machines life the original crankcases have been replaced. It is offered with a Mot certificate issued in May of this year.
