My brother has just passed away and I have come across this pic

I know its a BSA but wondered if its clear enough for anyone to tell me 500cc or 650cc and year or model

Swinging arm suspension was introduced to the A10 series in 1954 . The bike in the picture has plunger suspension . Could be an A10 or an A7 ( 650 or 500 ) but there isn't enough detail and both bikes were externally very similar . You won't be able to work out the year from the number plate because the Year Suffix was not introduced until 1963 . Not particularly helpful I'm afraid .

Thanks very much raesewell for the tip to ask NMM - I did just that and got a reply within the hour - Bike is identified as a 1951 or 52 BSA A7 500cc twin.

Thanks again to all who replied.
