Hi Everyone, Just joined the club ! First time I've owned a Bantam and looking forward to giving her the onceover and make her roadworthy. Bike still has old logbook and was last registered in 1971. Hasn't (legally) been on the road as far as I'm aware since then so looks like a complete strip and a good fettle and plenty use of the forum. I live about 11 miles west of York just off the A59 if anybody's in the area. I'll put a picture up if I can figure out how to do it.

Hi and welcome,

Don't forget to tell us all about which type of Bantam you own. We used to have a forum map at one time. Seem to think you have quite a few Bantam owners close to you from memory.

Good luck with your quest/ Keep us all informed on your progress....

The forum map hasn't been available for a couple of years and is now discontinued, There is no link to it, I'm afraid, Nick.

Good luck with your project and hope you enjoy the refurb experience. You`ve got a popular little bike there, BSA continued making your model for a good few years after they brought out the 150cc & 175cc swing-arm models.
