Ribbed front mudguard for A10???
« on: 29.05. 2020 17:46 »
Hi, finally I was able to get ribbed front mudguard for my BSA. I have A10 plunger but now there is valanced mudguard 67-6543B from 1954-57. The one which I have bought is similar to 65-6605. But there is something different to my expectation at the end of the mudguard where "Front stand/rear stay" should be assembled. Do you have any idea about this mudguard? Is it one from A10? Or is it simple to rework it?

My '55 Plunger A10 front guard has valances and no rib. The rear guard does have a rib. I think my bike had a prang at some time in its life so the mudguard may have been changed.

    Martin, The guard you have bought is not from a Plunger A10, it is narrower, and of the style of the earlier A7  and Star Twin. Do a search for A7 Longstroke, see how the images compare with your mudguard.

 Here is a modern one from a UK supplier for comparison.

 This is the basic pressing, needs the support bridge mounting holes, but shows a similar shape to yours. You can see a strengthening plate tack welded to the bottom rear for the rear stay.  Being a modern reproduction it may not be 100% accurate, and of course yours may not actually be a genuine original BSA part.
