I use Custom Fasteners. I think you can buy online, but I just send an order with a cheque and they arrive in a few days.

I heard they stopped stocking whitworth stuff due to lack of demand.
You might find a suitable bolt at Draganfly Motorcycles or any other good parts supplier,

This bloke trades on e-bay and specialises in stainless stuff for BSA's. His user name is    jimmorris49

I always used Lightning Spares.

 They're under new ownership, havent tried out the new owner yet but I'm confident that its in good hands (Brian Pollit BSAOC Machine dating officer). Loads of stainless bits as well as original parts. Ian Jones, who used to run the place, was fantastic. He could cope with "You know the bolt that goes into the thing that...." and had part numbers in his head.

Or these guys

Every bit for your A10 in stainless I believe.
