  • One of 272 specially tuned off-road scramblers
  • Very early example
  • Recorded by the BSA Owners Club
A stunning example of one of the off-road competition versions of the standard Rocket Gold Star, frame number 319 has the characteristic full race camshaft, and straight-through exhaust system – thought to be one of the most beautiful set of pipes ever found on a motorcycle.

This Rocket Gold Star is recorded by the BSA Owners Club in Britain as being dispatched from the factory with engine number 7396 on 8 June 1962. The BSA travelled to the United States and is recorded against Vince Neal of California, before being owned by Bob Hovden in 1991, also in the United States. The present owner bought the A10 RGS in 2013 and has continued to maintain it in excellent condition.


Please note that this motorcycle is titled as 1964, which is the initial year of registration. Speak to an RM Sotheby's administration representative for further information.

Si prega di notare che questa motocicletta è indicata nei documenti di circolazione come 1964, che è l’anno di prima immatricolazione. Per qualsiasi ulteriore informazione, contattare uno degli specialisti di RM-Sotheby’s
