Can you ID this bike?
« on: Jul 14, 2016, 17:05:57 »
My dad passed a few years ago just as I was getting into bikes. I have an old picture of him on his bike but I don't know make/model/year.

Can anyone ID the bike for me?

Cheers!

Agreed. Looks like BSA A65 Lightning with some touring accessories.

Not an AJS.  It is a BSA A65 with a tacho, single sided 8" front brake and twin carbs so that makes it a Lightning I think.
