Hi,

I’m putting together an off-road D3 swinger framed Bantam in the spirit of something that could have been done pre ‘65.

I remember reading in a mag. about using C11/12 forks.

Does anyone know what would need to be done to use them? Does the C11/12 use a pull out spindle? And if so can a Bantam D7 hub be used?

All help gratefully received!

Thanks Sunny,

I did have a good look through and couldn’t find anything definite.  

I’ve bought some C15 forks now, I know they are not the best, and they need a good looking at but they were cheap! And the D3 frame I want to attach them to came fitted with what looks like a set of C15 yokes.

So next question, what needs to be done to fit a Bantam wheel into C15 forks? I’m sure someone must have done it!

Thanks in advance.
