BSA THUNDERBOLT T65 1972 5
You're a BSA or Triumph ???
The T65 was an order from the distributors of BSA (which might not work) and Triunfo was approved but with BSA logos!.
Most were for an order from the police in Australia and over Spain.
Equal to Harley, who despite their mechanical conservatives have achieved victory in time, have a strong personality becoming a real cult object.
The reason for this project is because a friend (BSA Collector), which has four in his garage! but was dismantled and in a deplorable state.
Is said to represent the best of two cylinders made ​​in England and its engine is like a sculpture.
I've always loved the British bikes and I wanted to restore it.
Thank you for watching!!

En Español
Una Triumph vestida de BSA???.
Las T 65 fue un pedido de los distribuidores de BSA (que ya no podía servir) y que se pasó a Triumph, pero con los logos de BSA!!.
La mayor parte fueron para un pedido de la policía Australiana y unas cuantas a España ya que entonces todavía no se podían importar motos Japonesas.
A las Triumph les ocurre lo mismo que a las Harley, que pese a su mecánica conservadora, han conseguido con el tiempo, tener una fuerte personalidad pasando a ser unos objetos de culto. La razón de este proyecto es culpa de un amigo (fan de las BSA) que tenía ¡cuatro en su garaje! y esta desmontada.
Se dice, que estas bicilíndricas representan lo mejor que hicieron los ingleses y que su motor es como una escultura.
Siempre me gustaron mucho las motos Inglesas y me apetecía mucho poderla restaurar.
Gracias por tu visita.

A wonderful restoration of an unusual bike built during a very difficult time. This bike had been very badly neglected, by the look of the contents of the crank cases and the gauze filter in the oil tank. This images give me bad dreams! The paint is also beautifully done. A joy to see it complete and in the condition that it should be.

Hahaha ...nice one...“T65“. Great Work! To all you „Experts“: This is not a BSA engine - it‘s a Triumph T140, but some BSA Parts - hence the „T65“. Cheers!

This is a stunning rebuild. It's an inspiration for my current rebuild. Well done Sir.

A lovely restoration of a very rare machine indeed, (I'd never heard of them) regardless of the badge engineering. in fact that is exactly why it needed saving and what sets it apart from being just another Triumph.

Is it my imagination or are there two bikes being restored in this video, a BSA and aTriumph?🤔🤔

The T65 is a rarity because of the situation of BSA in 1972
Of course that is manufactured in Meriden and is another cause of tensions with BSA.
Some features of the T65 were
Front brake drum 8 inches, badges BSA alternator inspection plate and cover plate distribuicion fully polished without Patents Smiths chronometric speedo was in KMH

I was in love with a friend's BSA Lightning. I think it was a 1968. Chrome tank red paint. I saw an ad for what I think was a 1971 BSA 650 when it was just a few years old. I was sick when I saw is. Gray frame. Green tank. Could not believe what they had done to it. Had it looked like this one I would have grabbed it. This guy does wonderful work.
