    I'm going to be working on it and it might actually be a runner before it sells. Just needs fuel taps, I already have spark.

    Done some work on a Spitfire a few years ago. Really liked it, and even I could kick it over.

    Those BSA's are my favorite Brit bikes. The unit engine, excellent "featherbed" clone frame and all-around clean lines are a "10" in my book.

    The single-spine frame is totally different than the featherbed, but they (BSA A65s) DO have a good reputation as far as handling for road bikes go.
