Lot Details
1967 BSA 172cc Bantam D7
Registration no. MHN 149E
Frame no. D7 7018
Engine no. GD7 7018
Many a now-mature motorcyclist's first two-wheeled experience will have been gained aboard a BSA Bantam, a model that was produced in various forms for over 20 years. The introduction of the first 172cc model - the D5 - for 1958 marked a number of developments, the most important of which were a stronger big-end bearing and improved lubrication. A raised compression ratio and larger carburettor increased maximum power to 7.4bhp and the top speed to 59mph. Introduced for 1959, successor D7 model featured the 172cc engine while boasting a new frame, hydraulically damped front fork, bigger brakes and up-swept handlebars.

This Bantam D7 has been carefully stored since its acquisition by the current vendor at Bonhams & Brooks' Harrogate Sale in November 2000 (Lot 412). The machine has been got running but will nevertheless require a degree of re-commissioning before further use. Expected to come with a Swansea V5, it is offered without reserve.
