This was the style around 1970. Would do it again but without the high seat.

1965 BSA Thunderbolt (Beezer)

No longer owned


I bought this, then stock, 650 BSA around 1969 from a co-worker, and sold in 1981 to another co-worker when we moved to San Diego in 1981.

I also restored and customized a 46 Harley 45CI suicide clutch during the period, however, I let my dad ride it and he did cartwheels with it, so no finished pictures.


650 CC

Factory Options



Chromed the frame, painted 69 Dodge Charger green, 8" extended forks, Z bars, replaced rear shocks with struts, added 3/4 cam with extra loud exhaust, made sissy bar/seat, custom headlights.
