1956 BSA Bantam D3, 150cc. Registration number OSK 502 (non transferrable). Frame number BD3B 14824. Engine number CD 34355.
Developed from the pre-war DKW RT125 and announced in 1948, the Bantam became a top-seller for BSA, in excess of half a million leaving the Birmingham factory before production ceased in 1971. Originally of 123cc, the engine grew first to 148cc - on the D3 Bantam Major, introduced for 1954 - and then to 172cc. Plunger rear suspension became an option in 1950, the next major changes to the cycle parts being the introduction of swinging-arm rear suspension and a sturdier telescopic front fork on the Bantam Major in 1956.
OSK was owned by Neal Hardy in 2004 after being registered with DVLA in 1991. By 2011 it was with John Marple and then Wesley Bowman in 2018, our vendor purchasing it in 2018 via an internet auction site.
It has been stated that a restoration was undertaken some 9 years ago and when our vendor bought it the carburettor needed attention, which has been sorted.
Sold with the V5C, various receipts for work undertaken and a workshop manual. With a little recommissioning this machine will soon be on the road.
