1950 BSA ‘Bantam’ D1 – SOLD

engine no. 25567YD

This gorgeous little 125cc bike is wonderfully original and while it hasn’t run for a few years, it certainly did. Kevin always has a soft spot for these bikes having also raced on a Bantam in the 50s/60s.

This is an early plunger frame D1 .

Bantams were made by BSA in Hall Green from around 1948 and each bike was test ridden on their famous track before being shipped out for sale.

Nowdays, Bantams are a popular classic bike to restore and run with their size  making them easy to house, manoeuvre and ride.
