1960 BSA A10 Spitfire Scrambler


Via Bonhams : After World War II, postwar U.S. prosperity created a huge market for British bikes and BSA had been a beneficiary. Competition sold bikes, and BSA's off-road and oval track successes with its 500cc single Gold Star kept the firm in the magazine headlines. One of the most publicized races in the country was the Catalina Grand Prix, run on an island course on Catalina off the coast of Southern California. A Gold Star won the 1952 event, leading to a Catalina Gold Star Scrambler being introduced in 1956. The timing was perfect because BSA won the 1956 event after the model had already been introduced.
