BSA 650 Lightning 1967
This BSA is of Lightning specification, the bike has been in regular use with the previous owner for the past 15 years and is a nice usable example of this great British classic. In 1962 the Birmingham Small Arms company (BSA) launched a completely new designed motorcycle based off of the BSA A10 platform. This new model was called the BSA A65. 1962 was BSAs first attempt of making a unit construction twin. Gearbox, primary and crankshaft was now housed into a single case or “unit”. Often compared to the Triumph Bonneville, it could be argued that the Triumph has the legs in the engine department but the A65’s handling was always considered its party piece.
