We rented "if...." last week which is a Malcolm McDowell movie from 1968. Hadn't seen it for ~25 years.

In one scene Mick steals what looks like a red 1968 BSA A65L Lightning from the BSA/Triumph dealership in Shepard's Bush, London and rides it out to the J&H Packhorse Cafe ~4 miles outside Cheltenham.

It is a BSA A65L Lightning, right? Am not a BSA expert, but am assuming that all of the BSA A65T Thunderbolts were black while the Lightnings were red. Thought of the BSA 500 Royal Star although they had black rather than chrome headlights.

"if...." was posted in 12 parts on YouTube this past November. The 6th part takes a couple of minutes before Mick walks into the BSA/Triumph dealership and steals the motorcycle.
