If I were in the market for another A65, I'd be considering that one ..... From here, looks like good tinware, fairly unmolested, would be a good candidate for a rider ....

I stopped believing for a little while this morning. Journey is really going to be upset.

is that the original front brake?

my 66 tbolt bitsa has a half-width brake in there.

havent looked at the books


"Are bikes so nice as all that?" asked the mole, shyly...

"Nice? They're the only thing," said the Water Rat Solemnly, as he leaned forward on the handlebars. "Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- half so much worth doing as simply messing about with bikes."

Yeah Kevin,
That is the correct 18" wheel and hub, I'll bet. Especially with the full valenced fenders.

Notice the drop top triple crown as well? Handle bars right in the middle of the crown too.

I wish my painted panels were that nice.... No paint on mine at all...

Huh! Someone else with match color painted shock covers! Second time I can ever remember seeing those...

Apart from headstock assy and headlight unit, its exactly the same as my 65 thunderbolt rocket, would love the tin work of that thing!
