1969 BSA Lightning 650 A65L

This 1969 BSA 650 Lightning is an exquisite motorcycle. It was recently released from its original owner who has babied it all of its life including an apparent paint restoration 15 years ago. It has been lightly ridden and always garaged. This BSA has been polished and tuned. It is ready for the next owner to take a ride or to take out for a judging by the experts. This BSA Lightning motorcycle is a great ride and a beautiful piece of art.  It has a clean California title and a current registration. A true investment for the future, a similar model sold at the auction in Vegas 2015 for $20,000 plus 15% premium.
