Description

Original condition!1952 BSA A10 Golden Flash Frame number: ZA7S 10223 Engine number: ZA10 15686 One of BSA's most beloved engines the new 650cc A10 twin joined the 500cc A7 model in 1949. The existing parallel-twin architecture was retained for the A10 with a 360-degree crankshaft and single camshaft at the rear of the cylinder block. A four-speed gearbox bolted directly to the crankcase in a form of semi-unit construction. Like the A7 the A10 was available initially with either a rigid frame or plunger rear suspension; it would be another four years before swingarm rear suspension superseded both. Named Golden Flash initially the new 650 was strikingly finished in pale beige metallic a sure standout when black predominated. Ever since the model's introduction enthusiasts have commonly referred to the touring A10 as the "Golden Flash" even when it was finished in alternative color schemes as is the case with this particular example a black plunger frame model. The matching-numbers A10 offered here has been on display in a private and very substantial multi-multi-million dollar collection of European cars and motorcycles. Purchased several years ago in the presented perfectly original cosmetic condition the bike was sympathetically overhauled mechanically with attention given to brakes suspension and carburetion. The engine has excellent compression and the bike runs exceptionally well.
