This auction is about 20 miles from me. If anyone here should win, I could pick it up and store it short term.

Add those pictures to the Y bike thread! It looks like a '67 Lightning engine # but the rest looks later (BSA stamping on the raised pad).

1967 Moto Guzzi V7
1969 B44 Victor Special
1966? Royal Enfield Interceptor

A65LA,....... LA is a '67. So that makes no sense to me. I thought Y bikes were unsold '67s sold at later date? This is a later case with an earlier stamp. I must not understand the Y thing after all this time.......... Maybe just a replacement case stamped to match the frame?

Oops,.. add 1 '65 XLCH

Y bike threads are worse than oil or tyre threads.

The potted summary is that:
Y (without a '-') bikes are 1967 models with the revised 3 pipe oil manifold and 6CA points plates.
-Y bikes (with a '-') are 1970 models with 1967 style numbers for some reason known only to the BSA factory.

The front wheel hub, tail light, and fuel tank are all post-'67.

I think its the other way around. "-Y"is the oil manifold and points, "Y" is the 70 models with 67 numbers.
