BSA A65 Spitfire Motorbike Christmas Card by Motorcycle Artist Lee Lacey AGAvA


The Spitfire was the fastest version of BSA's A65 line, which at one point extended to seven different models. Equipped with a larger fuel tank and twin GP carburettors, the twin-cylinder 650cc machine could reach over 120mph. The Spitfire, in common with the whole A65 range, had the unit-construction engine, often referred to as the 'Peanut' engine due to the unusual shape. In comparison with the rival Triumph engine it looked somewhat ungainly and contributed to the machine never gaining the kind of legendary status the T120 Bonneville has come to enjoy
