If you like British bikes from the 1960s then you’ll appreciate what we have here, it’s a 1966 BSA Spitfire and everything on it is original, no reproduction parts of any sort, the owner even has a reproduction seat grab rail, but decided he just couldn’t do it.
The BSA Spitfire was a 650cc parallel twin with a 4 speed transmission. The engine had two overhead valves per cylinder and Amal carburetors. Drum brakes fore and aft and a great example of what British motorcycles of the day were supposed to be.

Below the image, in the description in the ad it says “alloy wheel rims.”
