1970 BSA 172cc D175 Bantam
Registration no. EPK 759J (see text)
Frame no. obscured
Engine no. ND06635 B175
The Bantam became a top seller for BSA, in excess of half a million leaving the Birmingham factory before production ceased. Swinging-arm rear suspension and a sturdier telescopic front fork were introduced on the D3 Bantam Major in the mid-1950s and a four-speed gearbox on the D10 in 1966. Introduced for 1968, the D14 boasted a more powerful (12.6bhp) engine, up from the D10's 10bhp. The Bantam's final incarnation - the D175 with much revised engine - appeared in 1969 and lasted in the range with only minor changes until March 1971. There is no registration document with this late BSA Bantam, which is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. Prospective bidders must satisfy themselves as to the validity of the Vehicle Registration Number prior to bidding.
