Rocket Gold Star numbers started from GA10 101 up to GA10 1800 making our one with Vin No: GA10 215 an early RGS.
Widely recognised as one of the most desirable of all factory built 'café racers', the Rocket Gold Star arrived in 1962 along with the first of BSA's new unitary construction range. A combination of Gold Star parts and the A10 Super Rocket 650cc twin-cylinder engine, this represented the last of the old 'pre-unit' line rather than a new departure and thus were destined to be built for eighteen months. The idea of making what was effectively a twin-cylinder Goldie originated with Banbury motorcycle dealer Eddie Dow, who had built up a considerable body of expertise in looking after BSA's high-performance single cylinder machines. Dow believed that his hybrid would bridge the gap between the end of Gold Star production and the introduction of new unitary construction sports models, and so it proved. The Super Rocket engine's compression ratio was raised to 9.25:1 for the RGS and claimed maximum power increasing to 46bhp. But for some reason best known to BSA, the RGS frame was unique, although not that different from the production A7/A10 item, as was the wider dual seat. The model was offered in a number of different forms and with a host of options relating to controls and equipment. Motor Cycle tested a Rocket Gold Star in November 1962, summing up the new BSA as a 'scintillating high-performance road burner: good brakes, excellent rider comfort and docile traffic manners.' A top speed of 105mph was achieved. Around 1,800 Rocket Gold Stars were made over an eighteen month period and today genuine examples are highly sought after.
This is a genuine 1962 BSA RGS Rocket Gold Star with frame number ( GA10 215 ) that has been fitted with a correct replacement DA10R RGS Rocket Gold Star HHC high compression engine ( Engine No: DA10R 8964 ) which was purchased by a Mr Bob Hayward as a part restoration project from the well the well known Manchester based RGS guru back in August of 1991, the bike was sold with no registration as the bike had fallen off the DVLA system as the bike had been off the road for a number of years. The restoration was completed after two years of hard work in June of 1993 by Mr Hayward of Waterlooville in Hants and has since been in the hands of two or three other owners since. The RGS retains the RR T2 Gearbox / Dunlop rims / RGS Rear sets / Genuine Gold Star clip on's / 190m/m front brake / Correct headlight / Correct BSA RGS DA10R ( HHS High compression ) engine as mentioned above / Large valve head / RGS oil pump / and Spitfire cam / towards the time of the final restoration back in 1993 the registration was successfully re-applied for with the help from the Gold Star Owners Club and the DVLA in Swansea. This is an opportunity to purchase a rare BSA RGS Rocket Gold Star.
( Not a Replica )
The last owner since 2017/18 has had the top end of the engine apart for a general check over and refresh / i.e New pistons / a Re-Bore by Middlesex Re-Boring Co Ltd / and a Cylinder head overhaul / with new gaskets.
I have also noted in a letter from the Manchester based guru expert that the engines crankshaft had been re-ground and was also fitted with a known Triumph clutch modification which makes the clutch super light.
