Nice condition 1971 A65L frame for sale. This was going to be my cafe racer style build but I am prioritizing projects and have decided to let this one go, so I can buy a 1974 Triumph Trident. VIN is A65L DE06865. $250 plus shipping from 05641 Vermont.

Shocks not included.

$250 OBO + shipping.


These are light frames comparatively. As an example, I just shipped a 1966 Triumph 650 frame with a bolt on hardtail. The frame was 37 pounds and 52 inches in length by 11 inches by 32 inches plus girth which I can't remember. Anyway, it shipped by USPS Ground from Vermont to Chicago, IL for $53. So, rates are pretty good for shipping items such as frames IMO.

Somebody please make me an offer on this frame. Someone must be needing or wanting an OIF BSA frame.

I hear you Allan. You got me to wondering though, since you guys seem to pay triple or quadruple the prices for bikes and parts over there as opposed to what we pay here, I wonder if in reality it would still be more cost effective to buy parts from the U.S. with the pretty affordable prices that we have and pay the international shipping cost and still come out ahead ? Something to think about and definitely worth checking into !

I’ve bought a lot from the states historically, but back then I’m customs wouldn’t charge on every single item that entered the uk.. now they do and it can be as much or more than the part you bought (depending on how much the part was), they also ignore the “returning to country of origin” statement now too. So unless we’re shipping a huge crate of bikes/parts etc it’s hardly worth it now.

... I may have already mentioned, I could have used that frame five years ago, instead I spent $$$ repairing mine, oh, well, at least it's still a "matching numbers" machine, FWIW ...

OK, so I'm at the point where I sometimes forget which stories I've told to whom, or posted on which forum, or ... laugh

PS -- thanks for the breakfast, or was it lunch?

God knows, I used to have lots of things slip through the net, unless a lot of things were coming through then they would get pulled up, a charge is the value is over (say £100) plus a postage handling fee which is about £20.... They could save us both the trouble and not handle it at all... then they wouldnt have to charge a fee wink

Probably because it's impossible to really prove if something is of British origin or not. So many parts are reproduced in India or somewhere else. Unless there's some traceability since new (maybe with a complete bike with titles or "carnets de passage" to prove it), they're going to get their cut ....
