BSA A10 in Movies
Electra Glide in Blue
I can't read much French but I think that says that recognition is difficult - agreed. We can't see enough of each bike to positively identify them. I think the one on the left might be an early Yamaha. The BSA is probably an A10 - maybe a Super Rocket.

The two bikes on the right are BSA A10s from the mid 1950s and I think the two on the left are Triumphs.
Un soir... par hasard
BSA A7 or A10 The French police actually didn't use Triumph at that time, brotherjack must be right. Look more like an Ariel KH500
Looks like a plunger A10 to me. Don't know about the earlier A10's but the French police did use the later A10s.

Je n'ai pas rêvé, hein, ce sont bien des BSA qui se sont jointes au ballet des véhicules de police ? Tout y est: sigle de marque rouge, bas-moteur en "y", voici qui n'est point illusion de tes sens égarés par des vapeurs apéritivesques!
Oui mais A10 ? Aut' chose ?

Busmar Astral sidecar Mudguard and sidecar suggest a BSA A10 What's the plate - 384 RTN? RTW?? Are KTW or KTN possible? 384 KTM = 1963, KTN = 1960, KTW = late 57 - early 58, RTM = not issued, RTN = mid-late 61, RTW = mid-59

This pic is printed back to front. That is the right side of the bike we are looking at. Can it be reporduced the right way round? The bike is definitely a pre-unit BSA A10 from the late 1950s - probably a Road Rocket.

fuel tank looks BSA, but the rest triumph? More likely a Chinese confection?? I think this may be a Kawasaki W650, made in the years 2000 and 2001. The color scheme is right and I think the kick start is visible in this viewthe new generation ("modern classic" as they call it) Triumph Bonneville has NO kick start. This was Kawasaki's tribute to the classic Triumph, BSA, etc. British bikes of the 1960's. It was a great machine that I love, but no one else didthey did not sell and was soon gone forever. I have seen used ones on e-bay but I will stick with my real deal Triumph Bonneville thank you made by our former enemies in a London suburb. (Most of our friends in the US were former enemies--such is life).
It's not a Kawasaki W650, those have discbrakes. It could be a Kawasaki W1 from mid '60 (a BSA A10 clone), but those usually have chrome mudguards. This one seems to have painted mudguards, so it appears to be a BSA A10 from mid '60's after all. (Also the tankbadge is more similar to BSA than Kawasaki)
