BSA-1956-Brochure-A7-Shooting-Star.jpg
"Ease of handling, sweet transmission and smooth low-speed pulling make the Shooting Star a delightful machine to ride in traffc, while zestful acceleration in all gears, a tireless engine and superb braking and steering cater admirably for the rider who wants something out of the ordinary in 500 c.c. performance" - that's what The Motor Cycle says about the Shooting Star. The basic specification of the engine is similar to model A7 but has an aluminium alloy cylinder head with special valve seat inserts, high compression pistons, sports camshaft, and manual ignition control.
