Were there any differnces between the plunger frame and the early swingarm frame nacelles for the BSA twins ? this is the "alien head" type.

Bonzo,
I think there were?

One of the first A10's I had, used a nacelle type headlamp. The "bucket" bolted to a panel, but there was no provision for that part EVERYONE is looking for, that goes over the handlebars, and the top of the triple tree.

But, I'd have to say for myself, never having owned or disassembled one of the highly desireable full nacelle units, I cannot say if the one I had, was entirely complete... I thought it was...

Bonzo,
The cowl was the same for all including the "B" range.
From 1955 there was a cut-away for the steering lock.
The bucket had an underslung pilot for 1952-54 but was plain for 1955-57.

Brett , I think you had the later A-10 style. Trev , I'm sure you are talking about the style I have . So , if I am reading this right , there were no changes in switch /ammeter locations? that's what I was hoping to hear . This is a lot easier than the Triumphs .

thanks again-BONZO

Yeah Bonzo, exactly the same excepting the cutaway for the steering lock from '55.

Trev.
