1972 BSA 650 LIGHTNING A65L
I purchased this 1972 BSA Lightning from the original owner on June 21, 1980. It was in very good condition at the time of purchase and required little work to bring up to its current condition as pictured.
A nice running, easy starting machine, the 650 Lightning was last ridden the summer of 1982 at which time it performed perfectly. The odometer shows 6797 miles (10875 km).
This machine represents the last year of production for the BSA A65L Lightning and A65T Thunderbolt models.
As with other machines in the collection, the BSA A65L Lightning is not offered for sale at the present time. Looking for a BSA A65 Lightning for sale? Be sure and check online auction sites from time to time.
