I have a 1969 A65.I had an issue with the center stand fouling the LH silencer.It happened when I replaced the original BSA headpipes,with a set from Armours.
Their pattern, primary side pipe, was straight,not kicking up past the primary cover.
Here are some pictures,(4), two on a dark background, from an ebay ad,showing the kick up,similar to my factory pipes LINK

When it's on the road shortly, I'm taking it up to the dealer/seller and get his expanation for the brake rod, he's had several a65s so should know.

Been a long while since I played A 65 but that brake arm looks way too long to me .
AFAIK all BSA brake arms are interchangeable as they all have the same size square machined on them.
It might just be the angle but the anchor strap looks a little on the short side as well.
the brake cam sits vertical above the axel and the rod runs above the axle.
Me thinks the brake arm might just be a front one fitted to give more leverage to compensate for a short pedal which would have been fitted if as previously mentioned the bike had rearsets fitted.
