Some photos of my old 1970 A65L. I got it from Miami in the late 80's and it was excellent unrestored condition. I disassembled it into atoms and re-did everything that was worn but I left the paint as it was because it was in really good shape.They tell me that the color was called Mandarin Red. The stickers for the cover were missing pieces but I applied those that are incorrect but are the ones I liked.
The BSA handled better than a Bonnie I had at the time and I think is because of the all welded frame of these bikes. It was a great touring bike. I had to let her go after more than 10 years because I got more and more bikes and projects and did not have the time for her.

Brought it home from Ohio to Ontario on Friday. Started and rode it around my block today.
At the moment it has no horn or mirror but I believe that with a very little bit of work it will pass a safety check. I was a bit surprised to find a capacitor instead of a battery and the lights are somewhat iffy so I think that may be in order before I try the inspection.

It's a long way from concours condition but it's very pretty and feels great to ride. I had one of these as a young punk and the attraction is still there.

'65/'67/'69 Lightning Clubman

I purchased this bike as a basket case in 2009 whose previous owner and passed away. I rebuilt it for a daily rider and decided on the Clubman style, even though BSA never made a '69 Clubman. The motor is a '65, the frame is a '67, but it had '69 parts and I've titled it as a '69.

The build was made most difficult due to the gas tank from hell! I found the large tank at British Cycle here in Nova Scotia but it had been painted and it was for a single carb model. I modified the bottom of the tank to fit the dual carbs and had it plated only to have the plating start peeling at the paint shop. The Plater had gone bankrupt, so I had to pay to have it de-chromed and re-chromed but the new plating wasn't much better - - looks good from 10 feet.

So finally, 7 years later I had the painting done professionally and will hope the plating lasts. It runs good, and sounds terrific, but leaks oil (imagine that). I've been pre-occupied trying to rebuild my B50 LSR bike for Loring, so the details will have to wait.

Tom, Very handsome bike!! My own riders don't get out as much these days. Too much obsessive fussing with the racers. We will miss you next week but are working on a trip for the Labor Day weekend. Please keep us posted!! Thanks, PRT

After not touching the bike for almost 2 months I finally had an evening to myself and went for a ride. I must be getting the hang of this british bike thing because she started first kick! There's still a laundry list of little things I need to fix or adjust but boy it felt great to get back out in the wind.

My A65 "bitsa" loaded up for the commute to work:

(Both of our four-wheeled vehicles are down for repairs, so for now my only transportation is a fifty-year-old motorcycle!)

Thanks fellas.

Although it is road registerd with open pipes, I am currently looking at my options to fit side mounted exhaust with small silencers or the longer hornet type pipes.

First post - A couple of pics of my 1967 A65 Thunderbolt that has followed me around since 1973. Now restored (at last), dated by BSAOC, waiting for its UK MoT then paperwork off to the UK DVLA so I can legally ride it again - First time since 1973 - F'ing great. Although it has been up the road a couple of times already but dont tell anyone .... And thanks to all the guys on this forum who helped me out over the last couple of years but didnt know it.

Nice! Big respect from me for having it so long.

I swap out bike more often than underwear...

This is my A65 Bitsa. It's a Firebird Scrambler replica with 1965 Lightning Rocket engine. The frame is later, 1968 I think but has no obvious numbers so I can't be sure.



This is it now after I 'tidied up' the back end (shortened the guard, removed the stay and fitted a smaller light unit) and replaced the pancake filters. Next jobs are a smaller seat and front guard.
