Title: A7 engine age
Post by: TomL on 15 June, 2017, 21:48:28
Hi, I've just joined BSAOC and this forum. I have bought  an A10 from 1961, but the engine is an iron head A7, could anyone help me date it? The engine no is CA76961. The bike is running and on the road but needs a little work before I use it. I'll probably be on here a lot asking questions as I get to grips with it, cheers, Tom.

The engine is 1959 season.

You can date numbers on the BSAOC website under "machine dating" tab then "motorcycle year listing"
