Seller description

Up for No Reserve Auction is a March 1971 build BSA A65L Lightning. One of the early OIF Lightnings built. Only 11,788 miles on the odometer. Engine number CE 05577 A65L. 
The bike is a U.S. import. It has an Etruscan Bronze and Cream paint scheme. The Forums suggest these early OIF bikes (before April 1971) had a dealer recall frame and paint scheme, in response to the 1971 Dove Grey frame model sales fiasco and early leaking swing arm pivot seals. The frame number is E 03400 A65. These days the Dove Grey frame is a rare sought after feature. It is the correct frame colour for this bike.
The bike is in good low-mileage original condition. It was imported from the U.S. 20 + years ago and has been in dry storage un-used since then. The motor turns over with compression. It has not recently been started.
This bike is sold on an 'as is/where is' basis. Viewing is recommended before bidding. Buyers must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding. The images form part of the description. It is missing minor parts such as side reflectors and side cover transfers. 
Payment by Bank Deposit is available. Local pickup from the southern highlands of NSW by you or your bike courier. We use Dave Golledge from Kwikshift – phone 1300KWIKSHIFT - for a personal, professional door-to-door bike courier service. The bike does not leave our premises without full payment. On-line communication with serious bidders through eBay email initially is welcomed.
