More Information on the BSA Super Rocket

The BSA Super Rocket was a Birmingham Small Arms Company (BSA) motorcycle that was a development of the BSA Road Rocket. The A10 had a reputation for reliability but was struggling to compete against the Triumph engines and the Norton Featherbed frames.


Launched in 1957 the BSA Super Rocket had a new alloy head and an Amal TT racing carburettor. In 1961 a new "357" full-race camshaft with high lift was used, with more dwell and faster valve action to improve performance.

A clubman version, the Rocket Gold Star, was produced with rearsets (i.e. footrests moved rearward from the standard position to cause the rider to lean further forward into a more aerodynamic posture), clip-on handlebars and a tuned engine, but this was something of a special and was produced from 1961-1963 based on modifications to the Super Rocket by Eddie Dow at the same time as the "Big Valve" Super Rocket.
