Most common eras


This is a lovely, what appears to be original Bantam. It is mechanically sound and rides great. Engine runs sweetly and smoothly and exhaust is clean, and the gear box and clutch move smoothly through the gears. It is in original condition with the patina to match and has matching engine and frame numbers. Everything works as it should, even the speedo which alone are expensive to replace. The chrome on the wheels is not so good but they are solid. I have a dating certificate from the Bantam Owners Club confirming that it was manufactured on 9 February 1956 and was consigned to Owen Brothers, Battersea Rise. I have a copy of the original document from BSA confirming this with corresponding engine and frame number. I have now decided to sell as I want a larger BSA bike. This bike needs nothing doing to it. It rides lovely and stops well and I have been told it would be a shame to restore it with a new paint job. Other Bantam owners have told me to simply laquer it to fix the patina. Nevertheless, that would be up to the new owner. I have the V5 in my name and address, in Harrogate, where the bike can be viewed.
