B.S.A Bantam D14 1968
Here we have a great numbers correct example of the BSA D14 Bantam from 1969, partly restored to the standard you see here. We have inspected the bike and test ridden it and can confirm it performs as it should.
The introduction of the 172cc D10 model in 1966 marked a number of important technical developments for the ever-popular Bantam, the most important of which were a change to coil ignition, replacing the old flywheel generator, and the adoption of a four-speed gearbox, while a raised compression ratio and bigger carburettor increased maximum power to 10bhp and the top speed to 62mph. Introduced for 1968, the successor D14 Bantam boasted a more powerful engine producing 12.6bhp. All three models – Supreme, Sports and Bushman – used the four-speed gearbox first seen on the preceding D10 while the latter pair boasted new, heavy-duty front forks.
