1961 BSA A10 Golden Flash, 650cc. Registration number XHE 90...





1961 BSA A10 Golden Flash, 650cc. Registration number XHE 90. Frame number GA7 21688. Engine number DA10 17214.
Launched in 1949, the BSA A10 was a development of the A7 500cc and was needed to compete with the Triumph Speed Twin, it was designed by Bert Hopwood (who had previously worked at Triumph and Norton). Initially it was available with a rigid frame but the rear plunger was a more popular choice, especially amongst the sidecar buyers. It had hinged rear mudguard and a semi unit gearbox mated to the parallel twin engine until 1954 when a swinging arm rear was introduced along with separate gearbox and engine. Initially offered in black and chrome to the UK market a new gold colour was introduced and became very popular and led to the name Golden Flash, some 80% of all units were made for export which meant that there were long waiting lists for UK buyers.
XHE was first registered to Garner & Son of Barnsley on the 26 November 1961 before selling to Herbert Metcalf and then Brian Brittain, both of Barnsley, Frank Barton & Sons of Hull sold it in September 1965 to Stanley Grubb of Hull, followed by Thomas Fitzgibbon and Brian Rooms, both of Hull. Our vendors father bought it in the 1970's and it has seen occasional use over the years, an MOT in 1996 at 74,985 miles followed by 2000 at 75,171 and 2001 at 75,379. Today the mileage is 76,256. It should only require light recommissioning before road use.
Sold with the V5C, V5, R.F.60 and the MOT's
