BSA A7?
« on: 11.01. 2014 10:06 »
I came across this picture some time ago on google images - it's beautiful!

It just says that it's an older restoration.
So what is it - the mudguards are different as is the exhaust - and that tank - does anyone recognise it? - it's shape is similar to the Catalina, Fleetstar and one of the A65's but the filler cap is in a different position and with out the central fixing - I want one!
Does anyone know anything about it?

Yes it does look very tasty. Love the pipe. The front end is very similar to my '51. they got the year wrong, I'd say '48.The tank does look like a modified Catalina job. Very well done.
Cheers

Wheteher it's all original or not, it looks great. I like the 'offroad' pipe.
In a different dept., take a look at this one http://www.yesterdays.nl/1938-empire-star-500cc-p-2765.html
Some of these prewars are looking massively great.

I finally got Roy Bacons restoration book and there is an ad for the plunger A10 super flash with this tank and so a google search found Ashley Blairs photo of one - very nice.

 Well, it is very nice, but I'm curious as the timing cover doesn't appear to have the screw hole bottom centre..??
