In 1946 BSA’s answer to the powerful and popular Triumph Speed Twin (released just before WWII) was the A7 500cc rigid twin, designed by Val Page. Starting with a long-stroke pre-unit 500cc pushrod twin, the twin range evolved gradually to 650cc and later towards unit construction twins with oil-in-frame.
The Golden Flash was designed by Bert Hopwood. During the launch in 1950, its distinctive golden launch color made it stand out in the crowd, hence the name Golden Flash.
This 1954 plunger model was fully restored and sparingly used since. She starts up just fine and runs like a dream. Just look at the pictures and enjoy the high quality detailing of the restoration. Wouldn’t this beautifully colored classic BSA brighten up your garage?
