BSA A65 off road special

Scrambler, Desert Sled whichever. Its 99% complete. Just some clutch issues to attend to and some carb tuning prior to its test ride. This project took about a year, while I was working on the triumph at the same time. Unfortunately, its the usual story of other priorities (finishing the Triumph) and financial issues which means I will have to sell it at the first available opportunity. Hopefully I will get a couple of rides in first!

Anyway, heres the specs:
1965 A65 Thunderbolt frame
650cc Motor of unknown type or year (see cryptic engine numbers)
Firebird yokes and petrol tank
900 Mk1 Concentric 28mm
Pazon electronic ignition (batteryless)
Honda XL forks and front hub
Kawasaki (modified) rear shocks
Alloy rims, Custom seat

And the before pics..
