My Dad did around 45 miles on his Bantam to get to mine and during that time it shed 2 engine mounting bolts and nigh on dropped the exhaust off the bike as well so it needed some TLC before we left for the meet.
Hi Copper, Great pics, thanks for posting them. Your dads Bantam looks in great nick. Is that the same 4 cyl Bantam you posted a while back ? it looks like its had some mods since the last time, if that is the same one ? My mate had one of those 250 Bombardier army bikes years ago... some machine ! :-) What threads are the fixings on the Bantam ? are they BSF/Whit ? or are they BSC/BSCy ? If you need any BSF/Whit fixings let me know. steven.
Good spot, that is his "Mk2" square 4 bantam, with Peugeot scooter heads and barrels and other chassis "enhancements", the original(which he still has on the road) has ariel arrow heads and barrels, the chap that built them lives near to me and I often see him on this or his RS250 flying about in the week, he must be in his 60s!
Thanks for the offer of fittings, we got away with what I had for now and he does have a small selection box of (BSF IIRC) bolts etc at home, ill let you know of we dont have anything suitable thou mate,cheers.
