Which BSA do you ride? / Re: 2x A10 -another newbie
« on: 30 October, 2021, 21:20:10 »
Thanks guys for feedback. Yesterday my membership details arrived and today took the red A10 on its first shake down ride -only some 14miles. Was really surprised how well it ran. Have spent quite a few hrs addressing a number of issues like a) rocker box oil leak, b) adding some bar end mirrors and lastly c) the poor single leading shoe front brake-solved this by swapping the TLS brake off the other bike - I still have a spare TLS for re-build as part of dads spares. Braking now is effortless and spot on. Next issue to address is the low clearance offered by the side stand-but as they say there is no rush & I will sort over time. On my bucket list would be a trip to N.Wales on the red one -then to start fixing /restoring the black bike

Again many thanks for welcome to club- hope to meet some of you guys soon -maybe next summer?  -Andy

 Recent attendance at Conington has been light as a result of COVID? Since we are now moving into the dark nights is there a weekend day meet or end of year local event? Hoping to get my membership details through the post shortly.

Thanks Dave for welcome. Guess it will be 3-4wks before membership details are forwarded.  The red A10 was built as basket case by my late Dad - the black one needs quite some tidying. I hope the attached files (pictures) come thro OK

As they say-a cheque  in the post for2yrs membership. Hope I get a good return on the investment on making my 2 A10s road worthy.

Just acquired my Dads 2off A10 SuperRockets resulting sadly from his passing. Thinking of joining OC as bikes need some work. One is well restored incl 12V /Lucas elect ignition-he invested alot of time in it but is leaking oil somewhere from the rocker cover area. Have dismantled once, fitted new gaskets but still have problem . The 2nd A10 runs quite well is still 6V but is tired - eg quite alot of play in swing arm , condition tired etc. Understand there is a local meet /branch meet near ST Neots (Connington) -could someone make contact to convince me of value in joining. I am mech. eng by profession hence able to do most of work myself- have RD250s, RD400 which I have resorted & Kawa ZZR1400. Have ridden Jap bikes all of life but keen to experience A10s.

Does anyone know if the factory BSA neons, each 10ft high, were auctioned / sold before the factory was demolished?
