Default Can you identify the bike in the pic

Hi lads
Looking for some help to identify the bike in this pic please. My great grandfather on the bike and grandfather standing beside him. Picture was taken in walkinstown in the 50s or 60s.
Thanks in advance
Barry

I could very well be wrong, but it looks like a BSA A7 to me
