MID WINTER SUPER SALE. LOOK BID BUY!!!
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE PIC's & DESCRIPTION.
This very rare and much sought after tax exempt 1965 BSA A65 Lightening has recently been imported from North America where it has spent all its life – the air is thin and the climate is far kinder to motorcycles than ours.
PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES. As you may or maynot know. here at DK Motorcycles we have very little knowledge or experience with these classic British bikes but luckilly you aficianados usually put us rite!?.
Sadly the engine is seized. hopfully it will be through standing around forever but we have not inspected the engine internally so we have no idea why/how it has seized.
If you require any further information please give us a call or better still visit our showroom and have a good look over the bike for yourself – after all who are you going to believe me or your own eyes?
If you are ready for a winter project & have been looking for a classic BSA A65 to restore then look no further – THIS ONE COULD BE YOURS!!!
We are listing this bike as a trade clearance item with a super low MID WINTER MADNESS SALE starting price and NO RESERVE so get bidding and get this project started. . Ask your self the question “CAN I AFFORD NOT TO BID?”
Please call MARK RUSHTON or NEIL WILSON or on 01782 861100 ext 244 or 241 who will be more than happy to answer any questions you have.
The bike is currently unregistered. The registration process is reasonably uncomplicated.
We HAVE NOT got the American Title (Registration Document) but we will provide the NOVA certificate from Customs & Excise to prove we have paid VAT & duty. this will be provided with an official V55/5 form for 1st registration application.
1. You need to get the bike MOT'd.
2. You need to prove the year of manufacture. Phone North Leicester Motorcycles on 01530 263381 with the frame & engine Numbers. for a small fee they will send you a letter confirming the age.
3. You need to have valid insurance on the bike. You can insure it on the chassis number.
