Found on eBay: 1963 BSA Thunderbolt

11/3/2009 3:24:08 PM



Wandering through the expanse that is eBay, many things caught our eye this week, but we kept coming back to what looks like a great original, useable classic, this 1963 BSA Thunderbolt.

Though the auction doesn't give much info about the care and maintenance of the bike, it appears to have just less than 23,000 miles on its' gorgeous Smiths Chronometric gauges and looks as though it has lead a pretty good life. All the original parts appear to be there, and though the chrome looks a bit worn, we like the patina.
