BSA A65L in Movies
The bike armed with explosive rockets, ridden by evil Bond-girl Fiona Volpe(played by Italian actress Luciana Paluzzi);a trick into movie was that of make believe that bike was ridden by a woman, really, while, the stunt was done making drive the bike in motorway scene by a leather-clad-in biker-suit man;the unique scenes played with the woman and the bike together were these when throw away the same in a ravine, after killing mission After blowing up the car, Fiona gets rid of the bike by dumping it into a lake. Should we upgrade this to 3 stars, given its rather dramatic use? Registration is BOJ443C, but this doesn't appear on the DVLA database. Not if it is used just for that scene (though that I do not know if it is short or not). The bike spends less than a minute on screen, if you want to you can watch the scene here (the bike appears at 4:20) I'd keep the 2-star rating OK.
I saw this actual bike FOR SALE at barber motorsports park in the states a few months ago... looked great. i went to local cinema to watch the film.There was a competition to win an exact same bike it was in the foyer on show and carried same reg,but this didn't appear on dvla site Issued Birmingham in 1965, so probably genuine. As the B in BSA stood for Birmingham it could have been factory-provided??
And Now for Something Completely Different
Also here: /vehicle.php?id=78637 They're BSAs, the logo is written on the seats. yes but which models? the one with red tank (on left in all clips) is different Mid to late 60s models. The red one could be an A65 Lightning. It has the small tank usually found on the US export models. the one with the red tank is a C 15, right Jun?
By the plates and bumper, I guess left one on the main pic is the red tank one. (DBY 92H ?) This exhaust (silencer) suggests it's twin & late '70 or '71- model, but front fender says '68-, and tank says export I can say is A65(Lightning/Thundervolt = twin carb/single carb) of '68- , if I believe the red tank... Another BSA are '68-'70 model by triangular reflectors on the side of tail lamp.

BSA 650 J'ai trouvé sur Internet le commentaire suivant (au sujet de la Mustang): "Ces scènes ont été tournées par le cascadeur Bud Ekins ami de Steve Mcqueen. C'est Ekins aussi qui tombe de la moto BSA . (C'est lui aussi qui avait doublé les cascades de motocyclette dans "La grande évasion" en 1963.)" BSA A65 Lightning. Probably near new at the time of filming so could be dated 1968. good ole BSAs! My dad owned one of them and a few years later he bought a 1975 Norton Commando 650cc
Riden by the same stunt rider who did the bike stunt in The Great Escape.
..only seen at night.! On va dire qu ela moto la plus claire, derrière, c'est une BSA début seventies...
... genre BSA A 65...
Teen Beach Movie
I was barely able to get a side view of the tank, but this later image of the bike makes me think it's a BSA of some kind: You'd think in a movie with bikers, they'd have more bikes. There's another shot of the apparently '70s Volkswagen Beetle in the background of the thumbnail. Yes, definitely BSA, probably a Lightning.It is either 1968, '69 or 1970. Finally! Now see if you can identify this one to the right of Grace Phipps: Link to "a.dolimg.com"

Birmingham plate - factory registered?? And here - /vehicle_7389-BSA-Lightning-A65L-1965.html - in Thunderball with some accessories.
BSA Thunderbolt 650 A 65
This bike is 1969 or 1970. In the close up it is minus its carbs but in the other shot the carbs appear to be splayed out which would suggest it is a Lightning - that plus the fact that it has a tachometer which the Thunderbolt usually didn't have. So 1969 BSA Lightning.
Gone in Sixty Seconds
Assuming the forks are correct for the bike, this is what is left of a BSA A65 from 1971-72, probably a Lightning because I think the Thunderbolt was not sold in the US - if it was it was in very small numbers.
BSA 650 (Thunderbolt or Lightning?)
It is a Lightning - note the splayed twin carbs. It has the later front brake so is 1969 or 1970.
Bolidi sull'asfalto a tutta birra!
1966 Lightning [A65L] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BSA_Lightning 2 in 4 pipes to impress CB Four bikers
From the picture it seems twin, and has chrome tank & fender. It's BSA Lightning or Thunderbolt (1968-1970 from front drum brake casing), but can't point which is. I can only label this 'BSA 650cc (1968)'
This one is maybe easier to ID. wich one ? left, front: Honda CB 450 Black Bomber right, front: BSA A65, 2 carbs: Lightning
The one high-lighted.

1967 a65 lightning my guess http://classic-motorbikes.net/images/gallery/1967-a65.jpg
I've owned a Thunderbolt + also (two) 500 Royal star's ..which all share the same design. BSA Lightning 650cc I'd say. I haven't found a single picture of a Thunderbolt with the hunch seat. i have a poster of the thunderbolt with the humped street from an American mag
Wonder if its the Lightening from the bike shop scenes.
Drra på - kul grej på väg till Götet
With 134 on the licensplate. Also here: BSA A65 Lightning 1963 on. It's said to have been from 1965 onwards: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BSA_Lightning
License plate A134. A = Stockholms stad. License plate T134. T = Örebro län.
looks british.? Engine is BSA 650cc from 1962, so BSA Chopper (for comparision, 1965 BSA A65 Lightning) http://www.realclassic.co.uk/bsa03112100.html
Not really a chopper - just a Lightning with its forks extended. It probably would suffer lubrication problems with its gearbox.
