C.1963 BSA Bantam D7, 175cc. Registration number WDX 924A, not recorded with DVLA. Frame number D7 617??. Engine number ED7B 24030.
Many a now-mature motorcyclist's first two-wheeled experience will have been gained aboard a BSA Bantam, a model that was produced in various forms for over 20 years. The introduction of the first 172cc model - the D5 - for 1958 marked a number of developments, the most important of which were a stronger big-end bearing and improved lubrication. A raised compression ratio and larger carburettor increased maximum power to 7.4bhp and the top speed to 59mph. Introduced for 1959, successor D7 model - known as the Bantam Super - featured the 172cc engine while boasting a new frame, hydraulically damped front fork, bigger brakes and up-swept handlebars.
This D7, with battery electrics, is stated as being an older restoration that starts and rides, although Spicers recommend it undergoing recommissioning.
There is no paperwork with this machine.
