3. History/Market Conditions

The BSA Golden Flash, commonly referred to
as the Gold Flash, was a 646 cc (39.4
cu in) air-cooled parallel twin motorcycle designed by Bert Hopwood and
produced by Birmingham Small Arms Company (BSA) at Small Heath, Birmingham. The
Golden Flash was the first model in the BSA A10 series. It was available in
black and chrome; but it was the distinctive golden paint scheme that gave The
Golden Flash its name. Production continued until 1963 when it was superseded
by the BSA A65 Star.

Although
never designed as a sport motorcycle, the Golden Flash was nonetheless fast for
its time and competitive with the Triumph Tiger 100, achieving over 100 miles
per hour in tests in 1950, and covering a standing quarter mile in less than 16
seconds. Its gold colour proved a marketing success, outselling Triumph’s Speed
Twin and 6T Thunderbird.

It received
updates throughout its model life. In 1960 it was renamed the “Royal Tourist”
in the US. An alternator was offered as an alternative to the dynamo from 1961
to 1963, the last three years of production.

The subject
vehicle has undergone a thorough mechanical and cosmetic restoration on a stock
chassis. The result is a Concours quality motorcycle that retains the classic
styling it left the factory with. The motorcycle is the early model of this
series with plunger style frame. As a result, prime examples such as the
subject vehicle can be hard to find. It is a great example of a popular British
brand.
