BSA A10 Golden Flash Gallery

The 650 cc Gold Flash was introduced to the BSA range in 1950 with a choice of plunger or rigid rear suspension, to join the 500cc A7 which had undergone an engine revision in line with the new A10 design incorporating a gearbox bolted to the crankcase to form a semi-unit construction arrangement. It quickly earned a reputation for reliability and became a popular mount, destined to remain in production for more than a decade. More BSA A10 Golden Flash information.

BSA A10 650 Golden Flash BSA A10 650 Golden Flash BSA's 650 twin was a very popular touring machine, often seen with a sidecar attached. The polychromatic beige paint was a radical departure from the traditional black. With mild cam timing and relatively low 7 to 1 compression ratio, the Golden Flash gave outstanding flexibility, with a performance of 30 to nearly 100 m.p.h. in high gear.

The early Golden Flash was available in both rigid and plunger framed form, the majority of former initially going to the export markets.
