18 Bantams on show was impressive, as was the stand. Plenty of people on hand to talk to, and the Bantam Bear has been repatriated to Yorkshire and integrated into the madness. Spent the whole day in one hall just talking to like minded individuals on various stands. Thoroughly enjoyable day out.

 

Cheers Col

Wow great pics,what a stand.

I remember myself and others being ridiculed for riding Bantams,now look at the humble Banty,it has centre stage!

Reckon a few of those who cocked a snoop years ago,find the now very popular lightweight a godsend after having to dispense with their heavyweights.

I agree with Blue. Many thanks and congratulations to all involved with the club stand at the show. It was magnificent! One of the best club stands there, I reckon! I hope I can get the time off work next year to contribute a bike, myself!

Had a surprise visit arranged by my bosses, what a show, but when I got to the Bantam Stand it really was a show!

A great range of bikes and Bantan pictures on the backdrops but it was the people that made it so special, I did not get everyones name but I thank all of you for your hard work and time making the stand super, on the few times I passed through it was crowded with smiling people, thumbs-up

I bought a t-shirt said hello to the ladies and had a great time, met a couple of ex telegrm boys like myself , fantastic day!

Agreed, looks like a great display,  but maybe there should only be rusty ones on display then maybe that would help stop the sky high prices being asked  by some, mainly dealers but others are joining in fast , if you see what I mean ?

Hi all, it was a great show all in all and I think the Bantam club stand stood out from the rest in my opinion, sorry if I did'nt get to speak to all the people that I would have liked to but I spent a lot of the show sitting in a chair with the beginings of a cold. Regards Basil.
