BSA A65 Spitfire review
The BSA A65 Spitfire motorcycle was one of the survivors, when BSA reduced its offerings to six models in 1966. Each of the 6 had a distinctive profile, and all BSAs were given 12-volt electrics in place of the outdated 6-volt systems. This change was in response to the fact that, like Triumph, BSAs existence revolved around a selection of vertical-twins. The BSA A 65 Spitfire was positioned as a road racer for the street.

The small 2-gallon fuel tank seen on the example featured here was designed for the U.S. market in response to the popularity of the Harley Sportsters peanut gas tank. The European Spitfire was equipped with a four-gallon tank, and a five-gallon version was available as an option in 67th. More specs and user manual of BSA A 65 you can see in next overview.
