I picked up this BSA about 3 years ago with the intention of going through it and using as a weekend rider, but unfortunately I need the money for other things so she's gotta go, it's a very nice low mile motorcycle that is completely original except the paint (frame paint is original) the paint is very nice and the pin striping is by hand (it could use tank decals as one is stained), it also has a very desirable Borranni on the rear (I will provide the buyer a matching front rim for $100 if they want) it was put away running but drained of fuel, I did lose the key so the lock is out so it can be keyed, the only other thing is it needs a set of air cleaners (I used them on my Hornet), the original exhaust and seat are very nice as are the fenders and gauges, in general this is a very nice low mileage motorcycle, this will be sold with a Bill of Sale, a transferrable registration is available but it will cost about $200 as I will have to register the motorcycle and pay sales tax (you can register a motorcycle that is this old just about anywhere on a Bill of Sale) I reserve the right to end the auction at any time as the bike is for sale locally.

The bike was built in the old school café style with a lot of power and torque. Bike starts easily and runs great with a very strong engine.I bought the bike from the builders as an addition to my collection but now I need to make room for other items. The original builders of this bike were extremely meticulous with the build process building it from the bare frame up; media blasted the frame and painted it with a base coat clear coat application. All parts of the bike were assembled with great care. Frame Number: A65L-5041 Frame Number indicates it is a 1966 Lightning Engine Number: A65S-8117 Engine Number indicates it is a 1966 Spitfire Title: Clear Arizona Title in my name Here is a list of the many new parts that went into the build of this bike not including all those small odds and ends: Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE
FRESH BUILD! 1967 BSA Motor in a Ridged Frame. Brand new Springer Front End with 21' wheel. Tons of Custom Fabrication. Left side Jockey Shift, Right side foot clutch. A lot of $$$ invested plus 120 hours labor. Needs very little to complete (rear brake, throttle cable, light wiring). Open to trades and negotiable cash price.Will need to be titled as custom build. Sold with bill of sale 'as-is' only.
Last had the bike running in 2005. Been meaning to restore it but not likely I'll ever get around to it. I don't know what it will take to get it running again aside from fluids, battery, tires, etc. This is a good candidate for a full restoration and definitely worth something to those who know how to do that work. I'm open to reasonable offers. Bike is pictured with a Spitfire tank but I also have the Lighting tank. Clear title.It's missing the instrument cluster but has a speedo. I'm not sure of the actual mileage. Has a Boyer ignition.
I'm selling one of my BSAs .... a 1970 Lightning. I bought this bike from the original owner's widow. It is a matching numbers, almost all original bike. Recent maintenance includes (2)new Amal carbs, new Barnett clutch, rebuilt oil pump and one-way valve, Pazon electronic ignition, new tires and tubes, plugs and wires, Installed stainless allen-head screws in place of the old Phillips head ones. This is the last year before the dreaded "oil in frame" BSAs. Everything works: lights, horn, etc. It has 9055 original miles, but that goes up 3 miles daily, as I ride it most everyday. I have a clear title in hand. $5800/OBO
I have owned this bike since new and have original bill of sale and manuals. It is nearly stock except rear shocks being Ceriana and the ignition has been upgraded to Pazon electronic with a dual fire coil. I have all the ignition parts to return it to the stock points system if needed. It was stored for 44 years and has been running this Summer for the last 2 months for about 100 miles. The present mileage is: 11,800 and has always been stored in a heated garage in Denver. It's a beautiful bike, but I am getting up in years and am having knee problems kick starting it.
