No, mine is not as nice.
Did you notice that when the rider turned on the lights he put his hand in front of the headlight? They didn't call Lucas the Prince of Darkness for no reason.
Here are a few pictures of the old girl. It has what is called a plunger frame for rear suspension. Mine has a Norton single gas tank, Velocette Scrambler fenders, a solo seat. Need to find a battery carrier and get the generator repaired.
I also acquired a 53 C11 BSA. Good thing it was free. It mat keep me busy for a year.
Some people would wonder why I restore old bikes? I feel it as a good thing to do, bring back old technology for those who have never seen a BSA, Norton, Ariel or any other classic bike. Some of the things we take for granted came from those bikes. Velocette had the first positive foot shift, Royal Enfield had the first swing arm suspension.
Well there are people out there who think Harley and Honda invented the motorcycle, what can I say!
Got word back from the BSA club and my A10 is a 53 model.
The other bike the 53 C11 is slowly coming apart. Keep finding issues I need to deal with. Good thing I'm retired.
