Restored – 1964 BSA Lightning Rocket

In England, Sport by Abhi2 Comments

In their seemingly never-ending quest to take over the US market, BSA took their Rocket and then made it faster with a high state of tune. Here’s a ‘completely restored’ example that’s been given some tasteful upgrades.

Said upgrades to this bike (engine number: A65D 5124) include the front end from a Triumph T140 for better brakes, Excel rims, a powdercoated frame, and electronic ignition. The odometer reads 10,660 miles and everything is claimed to work well. If you’re looking for more photos, here’s a photo album from the seller.

Find this Lightning Rocket for sale here on ADVRider (registration required) for $11,500 in Southern California.
