Hello everyone, greetings from Central NSW. I have recently bought a Bantam from a farm near Tottenham New South Wales. Engine # DD 4843 and Frame # BD2S 55695.

I thought it would be a D2 but having read a few posts querying the existance of such I am no longer sure. The "BD2" markings are difficult to see under the paint but the "S" is sharply stamped in a smaller font.

It also has chromed rims. I will try and get a better photo in the next day or so.

Any info would be appreciated.
