 Number 1!! 
1963 BSA Rocket Gold Star
1963   646cc, parallel-twin, 110 mph  Value in 2001 6-8000 pounds
Widely recognized 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 - mainly - Gold Star cycle parts and the A10 Super Rocket twin-cylinder engine, the newcomer represented the last of the old 'pre-unit' line rather than a new departure and thus was destined for a relatively short life. 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. Around 1,800 were made over a two-year period and today genuine examples are highly sought after.
