The original design for the BSA Bantam came from a German design, the DKW RT125 which was given to the Small Heath firm as war reparations.
This was kept very quiet until long after the demise of BSA, for many years the Bantam being sold as a 'truly British' lightweight motorcycle. It wasn’t long before the trials community spotted its potential. The easy to ride lightweight had a tough engine and their rigid frames could be simply modified for trials work by adding a large rear sprocket to gear the bikes down for their off-road duties.
This handy looking machine would make a perfect candidate for the ever popular pre-66 trials series. A dating certificate from the VMCC confirms its frame as a 1964 item with a 1966 engine currently fitted. There is no other paperwork associated with this bike which looks like a great deal of fun to ride and is offered at no reserve.
