I think this snap was taken back in the late seventies/ early eighties. A time when old classic British bikes were just old bikes. Perhaps you had to be a bit of an enthusiast to keep running a BSA A10 in preference to riding a Japanese machine but then again there were a lot of old Brit bikes around and they were cheap workhorses.
You couldn't have chosen much better than a BSA Golden Flash though: fair performance from 650cc, a quiet running all iron engine, all enclosed chain and solid engineering for good reliability. This one is packed for a camping trip a la kitchen sink cliché.
