Lot Details
1960 BSA 123cc Bantam D1
Registration no. YLH 130
Frame no. BD2S 72030
Engine no. DDB 13280
This ex-GPO Bantam was acquired in June 2000 by the immediately preceding owner, Mr Howard Phillips of East Chelborough, from a local collector and prominent member of the Post Office Vehicle Club, who had restored it (and others) to a very high standard, correct in every way even down to the original first aid box. While in Mr Phillips' care, the machine formed part of his private museum collection and was routinely maintained by its enthusiast owner and exercised regularly on a private estate until mid-2006. The current vendor purchased the Bantam at Bonhams' sale at The National Motor Museum, Beaulieu in September 2007 (Lot 601) since when it has been kept on museum display. The machine retains its original (London) registration mark and is offered with POVC correspondence, purchase receipt (2000), Haynes workshop manual and old/current Swansea V5/V5C documents.
