Hi from sunny Lytham Lancashire. I have a D7 Bantam that is in roughly trials spec. I could do with knowing what frame, hubs and forks they are so i can get the right parts.

I believe the forks are C15 but not 100%. The stem is too long by about 25mm do you normally cut these down and use same headrace. 

Any more advice welcome.

Hopefully the engine & frame numbers are still in place....all will be revealed on receipt of those 🙂

I have a VERY rough D5 project in the pipeline(they were only produced for one year), nowhere near as nice as yours, and it has B175 or other heavyweight forks fitted. It`s currently 6  bikes deep into the lockup, but one fine week I`ll dig it out....

If yours isn`t a D5, then it`s the D3 swing-arm model.....going by the limited view I can get from your photo. Unless someone`s grafted an early subframe onto a later Bantam frame, which is unlikely.
