Classic BSA A10 1956

This 1956 BSA A10 left the BSA factory on 24th February on route to Paris France . Since that time it has had the arguably better A7 500cc engine fitted of 1954 vintage. 

She was repatriated back in the UK sometime before 2013 and was re-registered on 01/01/2013 in the Uk but comes with age related number plate .

She had a full engine rebuild by AJ Harling of rochdale in the summer of 2015 and has been finished to a very good standard .

She has 4 previous keepers since 1956 and comes with many bills and a period tool kit which may be original.

On the road she performs very well and will stop 'eventually' with the combination of cable operated drum brakes. 

She is priced to sell .
