Found on eBay: 1968 BSA Firebird Scrambler
By Landon Hall
Though this BSA sounds like it needs a little tuning to be ready for the road, it appears to be in fine original condition. The Firebird Scrambler debuted in 1968 with both high exhaust pipes and lights, and it sold reasonably well.
According to the auction, this bike wears its original gast tank. Though the paint appears to be in good condition, the auction doesn’t mention whether it’s original or whether it’s been repainted. The chrome looks to be quite nice, and the bike appears to be a low-mileage survivor. The speedometer needs to be rebuilt, and one of the Amal Concentrics needs to be gone through, but if you’ve been looking for a BSA scrambler, this might be just what you need.
