This is an a 1965 BSA A65L Lightning. It is a reproduction motorcycle made based on the motorcycle from the James Bond movie "Thunderball". In the movie the bike was ridden by the late Bill Ivy. then a UK motorcycle champion. wearing a blond wig to make him look like Bond girlFiona Volpe. played by Italian actress Luciana Paluzzi. Volpe used the gold-painted BSA to fire two rocket missiles and destroy Count Lippe's car. which was chasing Bond. This BSA was restored completely in 2000 and in 2012 was shipped to Canada where it has remained. We have owned the bike for the past year and it currently has 1200 miles. The bike is very well maintained and is serviced regularily. I have included photos of the bike from Italy when it was restored and also photos of the bike at the Toronto Motorcycle show last year where it won first place in it's catagory as well as photos at the Toronto show with the bike and "Tig" from "Sons of Anarchy" as he was walking around the show taking some photos with bikes he liked. And a few photos with Heather from biker TV from our shop last week from a photo shoot. they are the most recent ones. The bike has been at many shows and has won many awards. it is truly a one of a kind motorcycle so if you are a collector this is one you will want to add to your collection!
