My recently acquired Bantam, but I can't take credit, as this 1954 D3 was obviously a labour of love by the previous owner; however, it will be well cared for by this new owner. PICT0001-2.JPG

Take plenty of photos of what you have for future reference - especially that sought after copper coil fuel line.

Fab Jade Once you start a restoration thread , I'll move the pics over. Like cocorico says the copper fuel pipe is lovely as is the pink lodge plug I got one recently form a club member -thanks Sponge- and am keeping it for a super special project I'm working on.  But you're looking good so far. Great that you've got the back mudguard and in reasonable shape, it seems. If you give us some frame and engine numbers we can help you out with it's origins. Looks pretty early with the forks and left-hand filler n tank.
