Congrats, very fine machinery, looks like excellent condition.

(& am guessing you are in UK, have added the flag to your signature)

He, she, it's a beaut! You are going to get lots of attention wherever you park it. Have you had much experience with British bikes?

Thanks. See https://www.a7a10.net/BSA/BSAGoldenFlash.htm
But things and life change, it's been in pieces for a long time now, waiting for the right time to start rebuilding it.

Enjoy your a10, looks like you have made a very good buy.

G'day marvic.
 Me just being a dumb, slow Aussie I had to look up that flag so I added Malta to your profile.  *sarcastic*
Don't believe a10gf, your bike needs a good flogging. Send it down here on it's way home. I'd gladly "run it in".
Bloody beauty mate. I'm sure you will enjoy her and have many trouble free miles. The A65 "power egg" might be taking a back seat.

Hi Marvic,
I know quite a few Maltese who come to Ireland to participate in our annual Rally
So once you get the bike to Malta help will be at hand, through the vintage movement there *smile*
USA oil brands will seem alien to most Europeans though, hopefully some of our USA members will chip in and say what they use over there
