Lot Details
1970 BSA Bantam 175
Registration no. DEP 96H
Frame no. PD04245 B175
Engine no. PD04245 B175
The BSA Bantam's final incarnation - the D175 with much-revised engine - appeared in 1969. Although at first glance its power unit looked unchanged, the 175 boasted new crankcase and cylinder head castings, the latter with central spark plug, and a stiffer crankshaft assembly among many other more minor modifications. The preceding D14's cycle parts were carried over unchanged to the new 175, which was built in roadster and Bushman (trail) versions.

This Bantam 175 has spent all its life in the Tanat Valley, Powys, transporting its owner to work and to chapel on Sundays. Original and unrestored, the machine displays a believed-genuine total of only 12,000 miles on the odometer and is offered with old-style logbook and Swansea V5.
