Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself, Dennis from Nazareth, Pa.  I have two A10's.  1st is a 1962 Golden Flash that I had for years but will finally be on the road this year.  I put an aluminum big valve head on it as well as SR pistons.  Second one I recently got is a 1960 SR  with a 190mm front brake, but the bike needs a total restoration.   Ebay purchase that looked a whole lot better in pictures then in person.  It does have some good things going for it like fresh chrome on the tank and restored gauges.  I have a collection of other british bikes, also a Moto Guzzi and a BMW r90/6 as well as some modern Japanese stuff.

Welcome aboard Dennis,

Let's see some pictures when convenient!

Possibly a new area for the forum, Palestine? I look forward to hearing more!
1961 A10SR, spent a fortune at SRM
1961 A7SS, finally the right green
2011 New addition 1937 Empire Star, twin port, high pipes. Turned out to be the most unreliable bike I have handled.
2017 finally found the liner/barrel were flexing and causing all the overheating/nipping up. Early B33 barrel fitted and it's reliable at last!

Quite a collection Dennis. This is THE place for A7 and 10 info, as you probably already know.

Welcome.

Sav - not Palestine but Pennsylvania. But, take a look at the map and you’ll see Lebanon, Pa close by. Curious eh?

Thank you all, nice to have a warm welcome.   My first ever post to any social media platform.   Been reading quite a few posts by members the last few weeks and a wealth of knowledge located here, as well as historical insight in BSA history.

Welcome brother... (but you might lose friends if you call this forum a 'social media platform"!)  ;)
