I got my non standard A10 clutch and brake cables from a company called Cable Tech in Sutton in Ashfield near Mansfield Nottinghamshire. They were very reasonably priced and work well. Hope this helps.

Regards Rich

I had the same problem with my A10. I took the carb off,  stripped it down completely and then cleaned all the components in an ultrasonic bath.If you don't know anybody that you can borrow one from you can buy them from Amazon for 52.99. When clean I rebuilt the carb using a genuine amal refurb gasket set that I sourced on Ebay. I then refitted the carb making sure I used the correct manifold gaskets and the bike fired up first kick. Hope this helps.

Regards Rich.

Got one. They look o.k. and seem really good value for money.

Just got my 1958 A10 running smoothly so I thought I would post a Photo of it.                                                                                                            However I am no sure I have done this properly.

I have just taken the carb off my 1958 A10 Gold Flash  to do a refurb and its stamped 376/15 which I believe is the wrong carb. I understand it should be a 376/17. Can anybody please tell me what effect the 376/15 will have on the way the Bike runs if I put it back on.
Thanks in anticipation.

How do you remove the steering lock from an A10 with a headlamp nacelle.
