Is there such a Bike ??

Post by Skip » Thu Dec 14, 2006 3:52 pm

Who knows??
Came across what I'm told is early 60's BSA A7 500 twin Shooting Star..is a basket case supposedly only missing the fuel tank. I once had a single 441cc S/Star [brother to the 441 Victor ]. Was a 500 twin made? This same fellow has 5 650 Yammies [3 complete& running..1 XS1 & 2XS2, a not running TX Special & a basket case..plus other spares. What's your thoughts?

Hi skip if its an early 62 shooting Star engine no. should start CA7SS-92 & frame should be GA7-211 they were a swing arm frame they used the same tank as the rocket on that model. hope this is of some help. I was big into A7 for a lot of years restored a 54plunger and a 48 ridged they are an underrated old twin.
