BSA A10 Super Rocket Classic Bike
Launched in 1957 the BSA Super Rocket
had a new alloy head and an Amal TT 'racing' carburettor.
1961 saw a new "357" full-race camshaft with high
lift, more dwell and faster valve action to improve
performance. A 'clubman' version, the BSA Rocket Gold
Star was produced with rearsets, 'clip-on' handlebars
and a tuned engine but this was something of a 'special'
and was produced at the same time as the Super Rocket.
Over the years the A10 built a reputation as a rugged
and reliable bike, ideal for sidecar use (which was
popular when cars were too expensive for many people
to run). It was only with the emergence of the unit
construction BSA's that the A10 finally ended its
decade of success.
