BSA BSA HORNET description



No reserve auction on this 1965 BSA Hornet, the auction starts at only $1. There is a title for this motorcycle. It is a real 1965 Hornet. This one came from the factory with a close ration gearbox. The close ratio gearbox is indicated by the “c” after the model code A65E. The motor and frame numbers did not match on 65 Hornets. This bike is titled to the frame number A50B8085, which also indicates 1965 as the year of manufacture.


FRAME: A50B 8085
Motor: A65EC 1475

The motor turns over, but the bike is not in running condition. We took the plugs out, put it in gear, and pushed it to make sure the pistons go up and down. Something is broken in the kick starter mechanism and/or gearbox that prevents the kick start pedal from operating. We have no taken anything apart, nor inspected this problem any further. It is apparent that this BSA has been parked for a long time. It needs a full on restoration and motor rebuild. The gearbox does shift through the gears. This bike has the correct fiberglass fuel tank. The tank does not have any cracks or structural damage. It is missing one sidecover, and some other stuff. Not a complete package, but a good start for a restoration. I am pretty sure the headlight and headlight mount are Bates items. The other pipe, side cover, and box of misc will ship with this bike. Please be sure to study the photographs carefully. I noticed the rear fender stay had been modified, and the rear brake stay was incorrect. It is possible that there are other parts that are incorrect or modified that I did not notice. I do not know if the indicated mileage is correct; I suspect not.

We will ship this motorcycle worldwide (except to the countries listed on our exclusion list, please click the shipping tab above this description for more information). We can handle domestic shipments. International shipping arrangements will be the responsibility of the winning bidder. We can have this bike crated for export for around $475, beyond that the shipping arrangements are up to international bidders.

Please understand that we will want this bike picked up or shipped within three weeks from auction end. We ask that you make preparations promptly.

What’s Old Is New Again – Video

Mon, 14 Oct 2013

There’s something distinctly cool about old British motorcycles. From the wire wheels, the minimal bodywork, and the exposed engines which give off a thunderous bark, I’ve always loved looking at old Triumphs, BSAs and the like from the 60s. I’ve never owned one though. The reason is simple: old British bikes are needy little maintenance machines notorious for the odd oil leak.

The Steve McQueen Desert Racer

Tue, 24 Mar 2009

There are few motorcycle icons within pop culture that have endured as vividly as that of the late, great Steve McQueen. A man who was at one time the highest paid actor in Hollywood, he avoided the limelight in favor of immersing himself within his passion for motorcycles. Never afraid of getting dirty, McQueen was at his happiest flogging a bike around the track with fellow racers or tinkering with the machines himself.
