The BSA A10 was the inevitable result of the relentless drive for more & more horsepower. Driven mostly by the performance-hungry US market (which also happened to be the largest by far), every British motorcycle maker scrambled to build a 500cc vertical twin after the war WW2. The first BSA A10 to be introduced in 1950 was the BSA 650 Golden Flash, & it ran through until replaced by unit construction in 1963. From 1958 to 1963 BSA came out with the A10 Super Rocket complete with optional Amal TT racing carbs. The SR was cream of the crop of all BSA A10’s with a tuned Road Rocket 650 twin engine to get one of the fastest, best handling bikes of its day. The BSA Super Rocket was developed from the BSA Road Rocket. The specification for the home market A10 had some differences than the North American market and east coast verses the west coast also had some differences.
The A10 SR on offer is a older restoration- mechanically in great condition, runs great. Has SRM clutch, cosmetically needs some attention, chrome on rear fender is pealing- Clean title in sellers name. Note the DMV in BC used motor # as vin. # which was very common at the time. The engine and frame number our correct for the 1960 model year. The BSA did not have matching number until the A65 unit construction bikes.
BSA is located in Nelson BC and crating and shipping can be arranged.
