Lot 208: BSA Bantam D7
Built to a German design seized as war reparations, the 125cc BSA Bantam was introduced in 1948. At just over �80 with solid frame & bulb horn ("including speedometer"!) it was an instant hit . The little green machine with its following wisp of blue smoke soon became a familiar sight on the road and was the bike that introduced many enthusiasts to the joys of two-wheel travel. Inevitably it grew up, first plunger rear springing, then to 150cc and a change of livery and finally to the model on offer today, with 175cc and swinging arm rear end.
With a current V5C and in running condition, this 1965 D7 is in nicely patinated condition and thanks to the excellent backup and spares availability from the Bantam Owners Club should represent a very straightforward project for the would be restorer.
