easily done in any graphics programme ( Paint, photoshop ....) usually the command is called "Flip" or "Reverse"

The question I would ask is why, nothing to be gained really so possibly a mistake but the same mistake made 5 times is a bit of a stretch

just had a thought if he scanned the photos then the scanner settings could have been the cause
All the best - Bill
1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco

It's a little known fact that during the 1950's BSA experimented with left hand gear lever and kickstart for the far East market. The Japanese liked the left foot gear change so the rest, as they say is history. Note the Japanese number plate. Someone should snap that bike up it's extremely rare!

Greybeard's on the right track; it's the Southern Hemisphere model.

How could any genuine seller not notice that all the photos were backwards?  And this seller has zero feedback.

Not rare (other than being an a10). Flipped images. Japanese did not use backwards Arabic numerals on their license plates, I'm sure.

Of course, Greybeard might be kidding and I am too thick to see through it.
