             - Please lets limit postings in this sticky to JUST links or uploaded documents -

Will give this a try to get every possible copy of A series twins up here (A7 & A10) for every year produced.
I have paper copies and will scan and add more to fill in the blanks, This is just a start, But goal here is to have every year and model covered in one spot.
**IF you are looking for material for Unit twins, singles, or other British bikes
(or chopper/custom stuff) PM me, dont clog this up**

Also Workshop manuals.  (Will work on service bulletins/sheets & dealer tech as well)

BSA Spares "A" Group.pdf (36 pages, 6.5 MB, searchable)

It was all retyped and the illustrations cleaned up and some amended to cut out models not covered, It has been proof read by my wife, so hopefully it's all correct.

Missing the numerical parts index. The early parts books have a completely different format to the later ones, lacking the exploded view, and are harder to follow.
