BSA A65. Probably uprated to 750cc. Up to 1969 the British bikes were limited to 500cc so that the side valve 750 Harleys had a chance. From 1970 all bikes were allowed to be 750s so bikes such as the Yamaha 650 XS1 and the Norton 750 were also seen.

Good point to recall this to us.

So, the BSA must have kept its original capacity: as far as I remember (I remmber well, I can say it now that I have checked!), On Any Sunday tells Mert Lawwill's quest (and reach) for the AMA supreme title, and all this happens in 1969.

Brom-hum, speaking with haste… Maybe the movie is (partially) about the loss of the n°1 plate by Mert Lawwill, since I see many pictures of his racing bikes sporting the n°1. Or was the documentary material spanning two seasons, 1969 and 1970?

I surely should have a look at this movie again. After all, I saw it only once, when it reached my small country town, 10 miles from my village, spring of 1974.
