Afternoon everyone,

I am attempting to locate the Bantam D14/4 which was owned by my late father in the late 60s.

The registration number is OOW 32 G,and it was purchased from Alec Bennett Ltd.,in Southampton.

upon delivery it was Black in colour,although according to DVLA records it is now Red.

Any help locating this machine would be gratefully received.

Regards,Dave.

I'm about to take ownership of EUG 46F a '68 14/4 - does anyone know anything about it from before 1984, when it was "first registered" according to the DVLA?

I know exactly when the frame and engine were made/left the factory in 68 but nothing else until 1984.

Hi, I'm trying to track down a 1965 Bantam D7 Super/Deluxe I owned from around 1988 until 1997 or so. It's registration was CHU158C although I never had a v5 or had it registered for road use, so I suspect it is probably on an age related plate now. I recall that either the frame or engine number was D745455. It was highly original and still carried its factory red paint with white pin striping and the original dealers decal on the front mudguard (Williers of Bristol iirc).

I sold it to a chap by the name of Harvey Milnes who I believe repainted it. I'd love to know if it's still around.

Thanks,

Matt.

My very first m-bike I bought in 1962, reg TTU34.  Delivered in an open sidecar box from Kings of Oxford, Chester Rd, Manchester.  £37 on easy terms,  Sage Green D1 Bantam withrubber squeezy horn, fishtail silencer, ridged rear.  I knew NOTHING about motorcycles then, like painting it all maroon with Valspar...what a leaning curve and what distant fond memories!

No trace of it anywhere now of course, it will have gone to the tip many years ago of zero value.  Wilber

As the topic says, PKO 15G. It was not mine but I know a little of it's early history. It is on the DVLA records.

I've just looked on the Club's Membership Database, where many members have submitted their Bantam's details - but I'm afraid that VRN isn't in amongst the 3,000 bikes listed. That said: I know that many Club members have more bikes than they've sent in the details for. 

Could I suggest that you send in your query to Lorna, the Bantam Banter magazine editor - she can maybe include it in the forthcoming quarterly magazine (copy date is the end of this month). That'll reach the Club members who either aren't online; or who aren't regular Forum users.

Likewise: I don't know if you've posted this question on the BSA Bantam Club Facebook page - but this would reach another different Bantam community.

Hi All,received this message from a lady today who is looking for info about her brother's old bike. As she says, it's a bit of a long shot but if anybody can.....

 

Hello there, I'm probably asking the near impossible but here goes!

 

I was looking through some old family photos and came across one of my late brother in 1962/63 on his BSA motorcycle - it wasn't new when he had it (others he owned were a Triumph and a Gilera). I can't remember the BSA model but the registration number was 868 MPU. It would be great to know if this bike is still around, maybe you could give me some ideas where I could start looking.

 

The photo is taken with Peter sitting on the bike with it placed across a main road (not a car in sight!). No-one would be able to do that now, it's quite a favourite with bikers as it's a straight Roman road (the B184 High Roding Essex).

 

Grateful for any help
