Beschreibung

c.1955 BSA 646cc Road Rocket
Registration no. YSY 457
Frame no. CA7 14410
Engine no. CA10R 9592

BSA's range for 1955 embodied several novel features. Alongside the existing plunger-framed machines were new models equipped with swinging-arm rear suspension, while the A7 Shooting Star and A10 Road Rocket sports twins came with new aluminium-alloy cylinder heads. The latter produced a highly respectable 40bhp, and as tested by Motor Cycling magazine was found capable of reaching 109mph. Modified in 'café racer' style with an alloy fuel tank, swept-back exhaust pipes and 'Goldie' silencers, this Road Rocket has been fitted with a later Super Rocket engine dating from around 1959. The machine has been off the road in dry storage for many years and will require re-commissioning before returning to the road. There are no documents with this Lot, which is sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.
