thanks for replying everyone , that will give me a starting point to fit the mudguards, I don't mind welding up holes and re drilling ,  these have to  be  dollied up and reshaped they are so rough , I purchased some from india a few years ago for a plunger and they were ok not perfect I didn't expect them to be , but they were made by rolling machine I am sure , but these are made by hand probably by a 1st year learner.     I have just purchased a chrome and black tank I haven't fitted it yet but it measures up ok on the anchor points and the centre bolt , the fuel filler is 1/2"   forward according to my old tank     but I am hoping it will go strait on when the time comes    thanks again all   tw        ps   I paid £200 for the tank including postage

hi everyone ,  I still cant fit these mudguards,     my Haynes manual does not give me any exploded view , not like the triumph book does , can I get a drawing from somewhere to see how the brackets and stays fit and where they go , I have scanned the forum for ages but I must be looking in the wrong places , thanks    tw

Hi, TW
Best bet is to get the BSA parts book for your year A10

Ensure you get the correct parts book for your 'model year', which may not be the same as the year when first registered.

For example, my 1959 registered Super Rocket is a 1960 model.

G'day Tw.
Here's a scan of my 58-59 parts book for the rear guard.
Hope it helps a bit.

TW,
             The guard mounts to the crossbar under the battery box and the next one up via saddles with 1/2" thick rubber pads.
Rear stays bolt to the frame and the rear of the guard.
The GA7 guards only have the lower saddle.

thanks trevinoz,  much appreciated,    would you be so kind if you have the mudguard handy , to give me a measurement down the centre front of the mudguard round to the rear tip , giving me the total length so I can see if this indian one matches.   tw
