Hi All 

let me introduce myself , I'm Tim Randles  a club member for 4 years a motorbike enthusiast, currently own or custodian of a 1966 D7 and 1968 D14  ,plus restoring a 1952 D1 Plunger . I'm the Clubs Area Rep for Cheshire , as a Branch we are organising this Year's National Rally at kelsall along with Mike and Anne Kilvert.

As of immediate affect I have taken over as the Clubs Dating officer , its business as usual so keep the dating questions and enquiries coming .I am here to provide guidance,  to help you through the process ,procedures and pitfalls of completing registration , dating and paperwork ready for the DVLA.

Also here to answer any questions that you may have , no matter how silly you may think they are regarding your Bantam and its origin .

May I take this opportunity to thank Steve Walsh on behalf of the Club , for his hard work over the past years . I personally want to say a big thank you to Steve for bringing me up to speed for the role as the clubs Dating officer over the last few weeks .


So lets get more Bantams back on the road where they belong and i'll help you through the process.

Hi Tim,

Congratulations on your appointment.

I wonder how many Bantams have yet to come out of the woodwork? I have a few , when their turn to be worked on arrives.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for taking on this role, as a Club, we would be lost without someone like you in this post. Most clubs nowadays appear to have a Dating Officer position.  All clubs and their Dating Officers must be squeekily clean in this process. Us owners may have the knowledge to rebuild a bike that has been dormant but we need you to complete the process of getting that completed bike legally back onto the road.

So thanks again for taking on the role, hopefully some of us can meet up with you at the National Rally.

Best Wishes.
