A BSA A10 650 twin 'Gold Flash' was my first
big bike, bought for a song off a mate of my
dad's. Unfortunately neither he nor I realised
there was a small crack in the casing under
the sump, and oil was slowly seeping out. I
learnt that lesson the hard way when the
engine seized going down a hill outside
Salisbury. It was never a favourite bike, but it
did teach me how to ride a motorcycle
combination, which was to prove useful for
my next bike, an ex-AA BSA M21. That also had its problems, ie being prone to splitting
head gaskets, and, being side-valve, behaving badly when fed with low-octane petrol, the
only sort you could get in central Europe at the time. That's the bike you can see at the
top of my 'about' page on this site, just as I'd finished restoring it in time for a ride over
the Alps to Rome. I eventually sold it so I could buy my employer British Steel's old
Minivan in order to keep the girlfriend (later wife) happy. Well, slightly drier anyway. So
my eyes didn't exactly moisten up when I spotted this, admittedly beautifully restored,
A10 at a village fete one summer afternoon in Suffolk - my M21 looked this good, but my
650 never did.
