BSA Firebird with low pipes

BSA Firebird with low pipes

Did any of the 1970 BSA Firebirds come with low pipes like the BSA Lightening?
I found one that has a fiberglass spitfire type tank with low pipes. He said it
was a A65F scrambler. I thought all Firebirds were scramblers with the higher pipes
not low pipes? Is this correct? It is also an oil in tank not a oil in frame.

Somebody swapped the pipes or the gas tank. If frame and engine numbers march, the model code is the final clue.

I did some more checking and I believe your right. The firebird scrambler never came with low pipes and in 1970
the tank and side covers were steel, not fiberglass.
Thanks for you reply.
