If it starts A65L with no other letter then its 1966 season, almost at the end June or July 1966 (a 1967 engine would  start A65LA). The engine and frame number should match.

If it was 1970 the engine number would include a pair of dating numbers as well as model identification.

See machine dating on BSAOC website.
