BSA Golden Flash
|Model:||A10 Golden Flash|
|Condition:||Nearly Concours (2)|
Restored in 2001/2 and hardly used since. Recommissioned by Classic Bike Workshop Ltd and running well. Over £6,500 on parts and services and all the bills are there. All parts from quality suppliers; Draganfly, Supreme, SRM who also did their end feed oil conversion, new clutch, gearbox bearings and belt primary drive conversion. Showing 800 miles on the clock since the restoration but it's hard to see how it's done this many really. Lots of nuts and bolts were loose when we got it (probably to avoid damaging all that expensive paintwork) but it's very nice now after a thorough check/clean/adjust session in the workshop. There is a dating certificate from the BSA Owners Club confirming it is a Golden Flash delivered to Emsworth, Doncaster on 1st November 1955. It was first registered 26/05/1956 and only three former keepers on the old V5 and new V5C. The BSAOC certificate states the engine number to be "of the same period" so I would guess that it's not matching (didn't come out of the factory in this frame?) but it's in exactly the right place in the 1955/6 range so I wonder if it is matching numbers and the factory records are incomplete or unclear? I think the registration must be the original because DT is Doncaster! That's nice, shame we haven't got the old log book to check it all but they are so often missing with completely restoration machines. Look, Ariel hubs from new, that's nice too.
These are old pictures, the same machine is returning to stock soon, new pictures will be posted after inspection on arrival but we've seen pictures and know the owner so we're confident it will not dissappoint.
