Ron Cosens Year: 1953 Villages: HandcrossTed Cosens on motorbike in Truggers
This photograph was almost certainly taken outside the garages at Truggers in Handcross, and shows my father, Ted Cosens, sitting on a relative’s BSA motorcycle.
The bike belongs to a policeman, Stan Dines, who was a member of the Royal Protection Unit. My Dad loved anything mechanical and I think they have been out for a spin as he is wearing waterproof over-trousers and the sidecar roof in on.
A motor cycle enthusiast who currently owns a BSA of this model advises as follows.
It’s a BSA A10 (twin cylinder) Golden Flash of 646cc with plunger suspension. The date would be 1953 at the earliest as that’s when the headlamp cowling was introduced.
The model was launched in October, 1949 and was often used for sidecar work.
