Hi

In the book, CA10R [not RR] is from a 1956 Road rocket. The frame number should have a letter as in E A7XXXX

It looks like you have found a Road Rocket there - But it!

Hi Anji, My motor is stamped CA10RR too, and is also marked HHC. It has been confirmed as a '56 Road Rocket by the BSA Owners Club. It is only about 200 numbers away from yours. The frame number does sound a bit dodgey though.
Cheers,
Iain
