I have a scanned copy of a December 1965 review of a second hand 1963 super rocket if your interested, its approx a MB. It was in Motorcycle scooter and three wheeler, a pommy publication.

A good rider periodically checks all nuts and bolts with a spanner to see that they are tight - Instruction Manual for BSA B series, p46, para 2.
