BSA A10 Golden Flash history
So it was with BSA in October 1949 when the firm announced the 650cc (actually 646cc) A10 Golden Flash which would be on sale for the 1950 season.
Triumph was at the root of BSA’s panic—or, at least, haste. Edward Turner’s pre-war 500cc 5T Speed Twin had, way back in 1937, set the pace for a new era of parallel twin motorcycling—a pace that was about to be reset with the imminent launch of the 1949, 34bhp, 650cc 6T Thunderbird.
Not that BSA had been entirely caught napping. For three years, the company had been marketing a rival parallel—and not-quite-so-speedy—twin in the shape of the 62mm x 82mm 500cc A7 (66mm x 72.6mm from 1951).
Launched in 1946 (from what was essentially a 1939 design), the A7 was a robust and attractive rigid-framed bike designed and developed essentially by Herbert Perkins and David Munro, but with engineering cues from Val Page who had masterminded the (arguable) predecessor of the A7, the 1933 Triumph 6/1.
And then there was Edward Turner himself. Bombed out of Triumph’s Priory Street factory following the infamous raid on Coventry (14th November 1940), and with time on his hands before the new Meriden factory near Allesley, Warwickshire was up and running, Turner spent some time at BSA’s Armoury Road site at Small Heath, Birmingham and injected one or two of his own pet design devices—notably detachable rocker boxes in the now familiar Triumph twin style.
