The story goes that BSA built this -\- Whether this true or not

Without documentation, could be some drunk guy's backyard experiment.

If ever there was a reason for an "A10" to go straight to the dismantler, this is it.

Nothing a bit of Autosol can't fix, though be careful not to lose the patina.

Its quite fetching in its current livery.  I would park it smack dab next to a Trophy collector snob and can think of several locals it would be fun to watch them in distress about it.

Blue star?? Did someone say Bluestar??  What year and 350 or 500??  (I did a trade for one and its sitting in Scotland, not sure if it will ever materialize but hopeful)

wow, a bit worse for wear. looks to have been well used,cheers
...(Fresh in from the USA, a BSA A10 Rocket Goldstar 'factory' 2 stroke prototype! The story goes that BSA built this at their Baltimore headquarters in the US, using an early snow mobile 2 stroke engine! Whether this true or not, we will never know, and whether it ever ran, or is complete under those covers, we don't know. But it's been sitting dormant since the early 70s outside. So it seized and rusty, and neither wheel turns. But for £999 it's a bit of fun and a good talking point! Whoever did it, has done a good job. It looks like the frame they started with was new as there are no numbers, but NOVA is issued on a state of Minnesota tag on the headstock, so easy to register on an UK age related plate)
