Starting with a A10 Golden Flash engine and frame, this BSA was converted into a classic scrambles racer in England.
The predecessor of the Super Rocket, the Golden Flash was introduced in 1949, and was available with a rigid rear or a plunger suspension. It wasn’t designed to be a sport bike, but it was still fast compared to the competition. It could top 100 miles per hour and knock out a sub 16-second quarter mile. Owners could expect about 23 horsepower at the rear wheel.
The seller acquired this bike (VIN: BA72794, Engine #: DA10R769) in 2012 after it was imported to Canada and then into Seattle. “I put on an alloy tank, Renthal bars, Amal levers, CR throttle, SRM 4 spring clutch, concentric carb, new primary chain, new chain and sprockets, and new cables.” Other goodies include a Husqvarna front hub, BSA QD rear hub, CZ forks, Works shocks, and alloy triple clamps from an unknown manufacturer.
