1971 BSA A65 Lightning Unregistered US Import
As you can see this bike has a few parts missing – Speedo, Indicators and the front mudguard being the most obvious. Other areas of note are; the headlight lens is cracked and the paint is faded and marked.
But now for the good news……… The wheels are straight but the chrome has some rust, good hubs and working brakes. The forks and yokes look straight with good chrome. The tail light assy is good as are the headlight rim and bowl. Instruments and switches look ok. The carburettors are free sliding off the twist grip. The fuel tank is a bit grubby inside. The seat base is in good condition throughout. The chain guard is solid but the paint is flaking Rear mudguard is solid. The exhaust is solid but the silencers are dented. The engine is cosmetically clean. We have had it Firing and sparking but it is low on compression so we haven’t had it running. The workshop have advised it may need new rings.
