What Is It?

The BSA A10 Golden Flash is a classic bike which is heavily based on the A7 and is powered by an air cooled 646 cc parallel twin, producing maximum power at 4,500 rpm. It has become rare and investable.

Features include:

  • 203 mm front drum brake
  • 178 mm rear drum brake
  • 4 speed gearbox
  • Kick starter, 6V electrics
  • 4 speed gearbox
  • 19" wheels

BSA rushed it into production to compete with the Triumph Thunderbird and it was available in fixed or plunger suspension formats, with the rigid format being the most popular.

In 1954 BSA added a swingarm, dropped the mudguard, re-designed the gearbox and clutch. A sportier version of this bike was then launched as the A10 Road Rocket.

Colours: Gold, black/chrome
