I'm guessing but I think that is a set of restamp cases bought from a dealer. This is one of the four (five?) variations of BSA A65 cases...

I wonder who made these? My first impression of this type of case is that they don't have the same casting flaws that are on my Thunderbolt and Firebird. I would love to compare a set of these case with mine close at hand.

Once again its a mystery I would love to know the story behind...

I bet it runs like this: Motor came off the line in 1967. It blew up and destroyed the original LH case somewhere between 1967 and 1970. A new case was procured and stamped by a dealer (who understood BSA numbering system) in December 1970 when the bike was put back on the road. Cool story eh wot?

People need to chronicle their bikes better so we don't have to guess so much.
