c.1961 BSA Bantam D7 172cc Trials Motorcycle
Frame no. D7 22276
Engine no. ED7B 20989
Just as they did in mainstream events 40 years ago, two-stroke lightweights have come to dominate Pre-'65 trials, and this modified BSA Bantam D7 roadster is typical of the breed. The most obvious modifications are those made to the frame, which features a braced headstock, 'laid down' shock absorbers and a lightweight rear sub-frame supporting the seat and mudguard, while the engine has been updated with the later, centre-plug cylinder head. The fuel tank appears to be of Japanese origin. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.
