I came across an old Brit for $100. Didn't even know what I was looking at but wanted it anyway. So it appears I have a late 60s A65L frame with what I think is a 441 in it that is seized from what I'm guessing is from time. I have the front wheel but has sportster forks. Shot electronics and I want to build a sweet a$$ bobber.where do I start with the motor?... I'll post pics as soon as I figure out how to.

The factory never did this and I can think of no reason why anyone else would, until we see pics its difficult to say what you have. There have been some strange results from people taking a good title and then stamping completely different parts to suit the title.


To get the engine work started take out the spark plug or plugs and pour in some kerosene, then each day gently rock the crank forward and back using a socket on the crank mainshaft nuts, after a week or so or maybe 2 you should start to get some movement and then within a day or 2 full movement.

Heres how , open two tabs one for Britbike forum, one for photobucket.
Make sure you have small size file images, or everything will stall. I set my camera to the minimum pixels .

Click on the image you want in photo bucket , this should now come up a single pic with a box of addresses on the side, highlight and copy the lowest address, click the BB tab, and paste the address to your reply, check it works with the preview reply button.

That is a B44 or a B25 (smaller 250 version of the B44) in a B44 frame. Would need a closer pick of the rocker box from the right hand side to say 250 or B44 engine. Either way well worth $100.

Seen 2nd pic, definitely a B44.

Engine number is just below the barrel on the crankcases, frame number is on the frame same side on the front engine mount casting.

I would say that is a 69 and was a Shooting Star, look under the engine and you should see mountings for center stand which the Victor Special did not have due to the sump plate and being off road based.

Well its not an A65, you have to assume its a B44 doctored to fit an A65 title, if there are no other numbers then its past cannot be traced, selling it on will be an issue.

Eng number location



Frame number location
