1972 bsa a65 thunderbolt, owned by my father since 1978, he bought it from the first owner. Frame number dates it as manufactured july 1971, but it was not registered until november 1972. it was this colour when dad bought it.
genuine 21000 miles from new, never restored or taken apart. Engine has never been apart. Dad rode it occasionally to shows etc, but it has been off the road in storage since its last mot in 2008, when he fitted 2 new 'silencers' and 2 new tyres.
totally original apart from the paintwork, the bsa is now showing its age in places as you would expect (front wheel chrome pitted). with a new battery fitted it has recently been started up and runs well. It comes with a box of genuine bsa spares still in their original boxes (mainly cables and some new footrest rubbers) which dad was given when he bought the bike.
now of course tax and mot exempt.
a light recommissioning would be needed to get it back on the road due to its long period of not being used.
