Classic Bikes for sale: BSA A65 Star Twin / Rocket / Thunderbolt / Lightning / Spitfire / Hornet / Firebird

The A65 series are classic 1960s Britsh bikes: the first of the series, the Star, was launched in 1962. This would be followed by a number of variants: the A65R Rocket, A65T Thunderbolt (1964), A65L Lightning (1965), A65S Spitfire (1966), A65H Hornet (1966), and A65F Firebird Scrambler (1968). A 750cc version of the Lightning, the A70L - now BSA's most powerful bike - appeared briefly in 1971, but production of all models ceased in 1972.
