Lot Details
1961 BSA Bantam Trials 174cc
Engine no. ED7B 28091
From its inception in 125cc form in 1949, BSA’s DKW-clone two - stroke proved a good performer off – road. Its light, all-welded frame and torquey engine prompted an ‘official’ trials version of the little machine, the D.1 Competition, made from 1950 to 1955, and many hundreds of Bantams were modified to suit off–road use by their riders. This tradition continues to the present day. This tidy machine is a recently radically modified version built by a trials rider of long standing with pre-65 trials experience in mind. The frame is modified for both maximum ground-clearance and stiffness, as well as to provide room for the 4.00 rear tyre. The three-speed power unit is that from a D14 and the forks are also later D14. The result is a cheerful, lightweight and inexpensive trials bike or trials trainer, ready to go, with no further expense needed. The Bantam is not road-registered.

Saleroom notices

  • This lot has a D7 power unit, not a D14.
