I've just begun restoring my old Bantam trials bike I used to ride back when I was a kid. Currently have the front forks dismantled but struggling to identify what ones they are. If anyone can identify them that would be great.
From this I'm hoping to find what fork seals I need, and where they go. I'd also like to know how tight the brass bushes should be.

Not an expert but they are either standard or B175. The D14S has external springs. If you have the classic BSA fork nut tool - a flat plate with two hex heads, the smaller fits the B175 (& C15) while the D7 - 14 is smaller still.
The lower brass bush sticks to the bottom of the stanchion while the upper bush fits onto the slider (with the fork seal above) and slides along the stanchion.

I`m wracking my brains trying to remember where I`ve seen that mudguard bracket arrangement.
Any chance of a detailed pic of the bottom of the fork leg,where the spindle/clamp fits?
The phos-bronze bushes look the same as the ones I`ve got in stock for the two h/w Bantam forks I need to overhaul....but then I`m sure many Beeza/Trumpet/etc forks had similar?
