Wanted - BSA A7 500cc plunger or swingarm model.

Needs to be complete and together - any condition from non-running project to runner. Can't use a bike in baskets nor a concours restoration (and by that I mean I can't pay a concours price, not that I wouldn't like a concours bike!). "Period Correct" bike OK, need not be matching.

Lannis--ref the A7 Shooting Star in Oregon---just some comments FYI.
Not so much to put you off but perhaps rather to give you some negotiating points.
I bought my first A7 Shooting Star in 1964 (a 1960 model) and after a gap of some years again have a 1960 A7 Shooting Star.
They are IMHO a very nice bike--not so fast as the A10 but smoother and a nicer ride.
My comments:
-- Should have pear shaped gas tank badge
-- No front fender
-- Front and rear brake plates should have black centers
-- Should not have an air filter (but better off with one!)
-- Non standard gas taps
-- Should have nacelle not a separate headlight
-- Should have a chronometric speedo.

For your interest I attach a photo of my current A7 Shooting Star
I bought it in 2010 and had to go to UK to see it and buy it!
Maybe Oregon is not that far!
