Was wondering if anyone had any details about the history of my Bantam D14 , seeing that it is just about ready to get back on the road. Be a nice time to learn more about it's past.

Frame and Engine stamped as on photo.(both the same)

D14B 5130 left the factory on the 29th March 1968 and was sent to Nokes Garage in Sheerness. It was a black Supreme.

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 77 Suzuki GT250 and a 77 Honda CB125S. I have a 74 Kawasaki S3 400 and a B175 waiting for restoration. A 1980 Honda CB400N waiting for MOT.  Everyday ride is a 2011 Harley Davidson Sportster.

Wow, that was fast. Thank you.

Nice to know it was black, as mine currently is - although on some bits ; headlight shell where the black paint has scraped off it's blue beneath, which made me wonder if it was blue originally. Clearly the headlight isn't original!

Thank you again.
