FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT OF THE FINEST ORDER
Pictured here is my line-up of British classics – BSA, Triumph and AJS. The 1956 BSA A10 Golden Flash has been in our family for 20-odd years. It was restored by my grandad and uncle in the late ’90s – everything was rebuilt and it has a modified centrestand with a Triumph arm. It has covered 5000 miles since the restoration.
The Triumph is a 1956
Speed Twin, modified to make it look like a Thunderbird. I fitted a new carburettor and installed an electronic pick-up in the distributor.
The 1953 AJS Model 20 has a rebuilt primary side, as well as a new carburettor, electronics inside the magneto and an uprated dynamo.
