Ive seen that, its got a QD real wheel, can't see the engine numbers, but all Super Rockets had alloy heads. It could be a Rocket with a later Flash engine fitted - Clutch adjuster on primary chain case shows its a 1960 on.

Definitely looks to have some non-standard bits on it.  Are those triumph forks?

Have you noticed all those "BSA Blue", "BSA Black" and "BSA Red" listings on ebay, cant those muppets come up with a better description than that, as if anyone searches by colour??
