So many things are running through my mind:

1) WHO would dump $14000.00 into an A65
2) WHO is this mad genius who could get away with charging $14000.00 for labor over 2 years
3) WHAT did they charge $14000.00 for? The motor has 10K miles on it so apparently none of it was a rebuild! Either way, they certainly didn't stop the pipes from bluing (lean mixture) or the oil drips under it. Permatex and new gaskets would have added another $30K to the cost of repairs.
4) IF you were going to dump a STUPID amount of money into an A65.....um....Purple?
5) $50K STARTING BID for a non-original common BSA?!?!?! You can buy at least TWELVE running A65s for that kind of money.
6) Antique Collector's item?

maybe he's building up some back story for an insurance scam??

There's not a BSA on earth worth more than $556.00

That BSA could easily be worth $50,000.

If it had $48,000 cash in the saddle bags.....( even then it's not a smokin' deal)

And did you guys notice both the flowers and the exhaust pipes were done to match the paint job !!!
That is the professional details that put this bike "over the top"..

Yeah really! Phucking Photobucket!!

Why couldn't this bike have been any other color? It had to be bullshit yellow....

Once it gets a little more dialed, I'll paint it.

Yellow... Who does that? Besides the new guy, Bonercatch...

Maybe it was a "Taxi Choppa" ?

Maybe... But whatever the reason the guy had for painting this yellow might have been the same dysfuntion that allowed me to steal this for a couple Benjamins and a mellow trade.

I can't believe it's worth over $50,000 now! It's an A65 like the eBay bike!!!

Totally stoked to the max!!

Looks like fun but I still wouldn't buy a bsa if I had that kind of money.
