Hello, I have recently acquired a D14 frame and am intending to build a road legal, trail biased Bantam. Has anyone fitted a different set of forks to a D14 frame, something a little more suitable for light off road work with better brakes? Any information would be gratefully received. Also I am looking for a D14 set of crank cases or complete bottom end if anyone has them. As a very long shot does anyone know of a set of cases numbered D14B 8158 as that would be the matching engine to my frame? Hen's teeth come to mind but if you don't ask you will never know. Thanks, Roland.

Hi Sunny, Thanks for the reply. I have tried to PM you but for some reason I can't. I have gone to your profile and can't find a way to send a PM. Obviously doing something wrong, could you advise? Thanks, Roland.

Hi Roland, he PM system does not become available until new users have made 4 valid posts I'm afraid. Perhaps if you do an intro in "Introduce Yourself" bikes/experience/location etc it'll bump up your post numbers

Hello, Has anyone fitted a set of C11G forks to a Bantam. I am building a trail type Bantam and have access to a set of these but am not sure if they will fit. Being locked down in Wales I can't go and see them. If anyone has any information on fitting any other forks I would be grateful. Thank you, Roland.

It is mentioned in the section I've pointed too, also elsewhere in Tech Discussion.
