HOW MANY so-called "professional restorations" have we seen that are screwed up?
Add this one to them.
There's also the possibility that the owner specified that his hubs be finished in black, or even added them afterward.
All in all, this is still a very nice-looking bike and the asking price seems pretty reasonable for this particular type of machine in this condition. The seller also states that it runs great, unlike another seller on this forum who is asking almost three times as much for his and will get it running if there is interest. The other might be an RGS but weighing the two, this GF looks pretty attractive for multiple reasons black hubs or not.
The Ad:1956 BSA Golden Flash A10 - Runs Great - Clean CA Title - $7,500 (Fountain Valley)
1956 BSA Golden Flash 650cc
Made in England. This BSA was shipped back to England to be professionally restored about 7 years ago and then shipped back to the US. It has been recently serviced. It starts easily and runs great! This is a complete and original BSA. I have all the records from the restoration including the original pictures. Wheels were rebuilt by Buchanan's spoke and rim. Restoration was preformed by Dranganfly Motorcycles in UK. It comes with a few extra parts and repair / parts manuals. The pictures should answer most of your questions. You are not going to find another big cc BSA in this condition for this price!
