Just found this forum when looking for bits for the D1. She's a 52 model, my old man had her for going to work back in 1960, last registered in 1962 and from 1968, when I was 10 was used as a field bike for about 6 years. Been idle in the shed since 1975 ish, I started her up about 10 years ago, had a massive belt off the mag, wipec I think, put fuel in and started fourth or fifth kick, then put away again for a rainy day. Now retired so rainy day has arrived, hope to do it up so no 2 grandson can have use of it.
And also thank you for allowing me to join,

Hi Lampy and welcome,
Great to see a photo of your long suffering Bantam, it all looks serviceable and usable. Think you have a little gem there.
Good luck with your restorations and please keep us all informed of your progress, with photo's...
