Hi, I purchased a couple of boxes full of Villiers bits & pieces & their were a few Bantam parts included, a couple of rusty crank shafts which look that if i learn how to split them they might have good crank pins & bearings also a well painted front hub which I thought I would pull apart & give it a sand blast & pass it on to a mate of mine who is into Bantams. I stripped it down, has good axle & bearings brake shoes nearly brand new. Combination of colours has confused me on trying to narrow down the model & year. It is a 5in hub the brake plate is Black both sides, you can tell it is original by the hardness, the hub is painted black at the back of the hub facing the shoes& the rest of the hub is what I call Bantam green, I am wondering if any one Knows of a combination like this & off what model,

Regards to all

If it's the original green paint, I would guess it's from a D1. You might be able to spot it if you look at the Draganfly site, ** Please log in to view **

You could also try a search of previous posts. Type front hubs site:bsabantamclub.com/forum into your browser to see previous posts on the subject of hubs. You can save the search and change 'front hubs' for whatever you are interested in.

Whatever, I'm sure someone else will give some feedback soon.
