1963 BSA A65

1963 BSA A65 The 1963 BSA A65 was, of course, the second model year of the new unit construction BSA twins, the 500cc A50, and the 650cc A65, which had replaced the very successful pre-unit A7 (500) A10 (650) in 1962. BSA was very conservative in the new machine’s configuration, as was their style. The 1962 BSA A65 Star was joined in 1963 by a tuned version (higher performance), the 1963 BSA A65 Rocket. In 1965, the Rocket sprouted 2 carburetors became the ’65 BSA A65 Lightning. 1963 BSA A65 ENGINE WORK As would be expected from any second-year model, following such a major engine redesign, there were teething problems. It was more of a complete redesign actually, with virtually ...

1971 BSA A65 Lightning 650

1971 BSA A65 Lightning 650 Each year, the month of March brings the end of winter, the renewal of spring and the Daytona 200. The big race, of course, is only one of the attractions at Speed Week — the Rat’s Hole saloon, half-naked women, riding on the sand, alcoholic indiscretion and the classic bike auction round things out nicely. Not to mention a healthy dose of that Florida sunshine. Fleeing winter’s last gasp, I found myself at ‘The Beach’ in 1999, in fresh possession of two old BSA’s, a Thunderbolt and a Lightning, both rough around the edges, running, and cheap. Just my type, you might say. Upon returning to Pennsylvania, I cherry-picked all of ...

1965 BSA Lightning A65L Bobber Motorcycle

1965 BSA Lightning A65L Bobber Motorcycle This  is a recently finished 1965 BSA A65 custom bobber. This bike was shown last week at the Rats Hole Custom Bike show at Daytona bike week. It did not place for a trophy in the heavily contested bobber class, but was very well received and admired, and the next day was set up for a professional photo shoot by a major European custom bike mag. The bike was built at Olde Iron Cycle Works in Edgewater, Fl. The bobber was mocked up, fabricated and assembled here at Olde Iron Cycle Works, and is almost entirely built by hand with the exception of the metal-flake paint, and the hard tail frame, solo seat, rear fender and oil tank which are from The ...

BSA Lightning – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

BSA Lightning Contents Development [ edit ] The BSA Lightning was designed as the all-round sportbike of the 1960s, planned largely for export to the US market to complement the touring Thunderbolt and the supersports Spitfire. Development of the engine aimed to make it more reliable, quieter and less prone to oil leaks, with top speed sacrificed to improve mid-range and rideability. Nevertheless, with twin carburettors the A65L could still reach 108mph (174km/h). Improvements included an oil pressure warning light, but this had a tendency to malfunction, so riders learned to ignore it. [ 3 ] [ bettersourceneeded ] A close ratio gearbox combined with a high lift camshaft made for lively ...

1971 BSA Lighning 650 A65 Motorcycle Restoration

1971 BSA Lightning Basket Case This is most of a 1971 BSA A65 Lightning 650 motorcycle. I bought it in pieces for $800. It needs a seat, mufflers (both of which I just found on eBay) and a lot of little things. It looks like the original owner crashed it, then parked it. I’m learning that it’s a lot harder to put something back together if you’re not the person who took it apart. I am going to buy a factory parts list so I can see what goes where, and be aware of all the little rubber gaskets that hold things together. The frame, swingarm, and other little parts (even the horn) were beautifully painted black by the guy I bought it from. He is also painting the tank for me. ...

BSA A65 LIGHTNING 1972 650cc VERTICAL OHV TWIN: OIL SUPPLY CONVERSION Monday, December 07, 2009 8:39:06 PM Both BSA and Triumph made oil in frame models at the time their production was coming to an end in the 70’s, this design had 2 main problems. Despite both companies closing Triumph did manage a come back but sadly BSA was never seen again. One; when the bike stood for any length of time the sump would fill with oil by draining from the oil tank, this equally applied to the conventional separate oil tank designs. The cause was gravity and an inadequate one-way ball and spring fitted between the oil pump and the crankcase. The other, because of limited space for threaded pipe fittings ...

Fond Memories of a 1969 BSA A65 Lightning 5/25/2011 1:38:58 PM by Dan Delehant Tags: Dan Delehant and his 1969 BSA A65 Lightining. Short of a thousand or more attractive females it was the most beautiful thing my eyes ever beheld. Over the years I owned faster and better handling motorcycles but none came close to the stunning estheticism of that black, red and chrome 1969 BSA A65 Lightning. I probably should not admit this, but even now, all these years alter, I pine for that shiny motorcycle more than any lost girlfriend. Mechanically and electrically it was no prize. The charging system, wiring, and lights were supplied by a British company called Lucas. Lucas was better known by the ...

1972 BSA A65 Lightning bobber Posted on February 19th, by Scott in Bobber. 5 comments By guest writer Ian Lee. Everyone should have a hobby. Something removed from everyday employment in order to keep one’s sanity. Today’s feature bike is a result of keeping work and play separate, of escapism of the best kind, that of custom motorcycle building. A civil engineer by trade, Aaron Rubio’s true passion is building and riding custom bikes, which he tries his hardest to be able to do at least once a week. Recent comments about a BSA and electrical wiring prompted Aaron to send pics of his 1972 BSA A65 Lightning bobber into Pipeburn, to show solidarity in not having every little aspect of ...
