i have just picked up a D1 plunger frame, frame number bd2s 69967, also the gentleman had a D5 in need of restoration, frame number fd5 4987, engine number ed5b 4215, the D5 needs lots doing to it, I am very tempted to make an offer on it. 

I would be be most grateful for any info on both of these bantams if it is available please.

 

Thanks

FD5 4987 and engine ED5B 4215 are a matched pair. They left the factory on the 13th April 1958 and sent to Cooks in Wellingborough. 

BD2s 69967 is a blank record I’m afraid so may have been sent out as a replacement part. The frames either side are from June and July 1959 so it’s safe assumption that it is from the same period.

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 77 Suzuki GT250 and a 77 Honda CB125S. I have a 74 Kawasaki KH400 and a B175 waiting for restoration. A 1980 Honda CB400N waiting for MOT.  Everyday ride is a 2011 Harley Davidson 883 Sportster.
