i've always wanted an old British twin. My lovely wife finally gave me the go ahead last week. Drove over 700 miles round trip today to pick up this beauty.

She's a 1968 BSA A65 Lightning.

The Warrior just got her self and older sister.

Good Find to add to your collection!!


My brother had a 68 Triumph, His shifter was on the opposite side, takes some getting used too. I was shifting up the rear brake....lol


Looks like a fun little bike...enjoy!

I could see that being an issue on downshifts. :D

Wow. Nice bike. I hope you enjoy it, whether it be riding it on back country roads, BS'ing at an ice cream stand, or staring at it in your garage.

Thanks everyone I have been staring at it a lot

Rode it around the block but has sticky slides on the carbs so some times gets stuck wide open which can get really interesting.

It had Mikuni Carbs on it but that leaves barely any room for a air cleaner on it... Will put the carbs back together this weekend but i do plan on slowly taking it back to original so Amal carbs and so on.

I did put the original pipes back on. 20190520_182635.jpg
