The 1968 MkIV version of BSA’s speedy 650cc Spitfire twin was the last of the line. Two particular features distinguish it from its immediate predecessors, the first unit-construction A65 Spitfire MkII of 1966 and the MkIII of 1967.
Firstly, the MkII’s Amal GP racing carburettors were replaced by the same maker’s newly-introduced Concentric instruments on the 1967 MkIII. Secondly, the 1968 version has the twin-leading-shoe front brake introduced on BSA and Triumph 650s for that Year: , providing greater stopping power than the previous drum.
