BSA BANTAM ALL MODELS 1948 – 1971
WRITTEN BY ROY BACON
The BSA Bantam was built from 1948 to 1971 in 123, 148 and 172cc capacities, with a variety in cycle parts, and for road, competition and trail use. Is was possibly the most successful British machine of all time in terms of numbers built and served its owners, many of them learners and commuters, well, despite some weaknesses.
Yet the Bantam was not a BSA design at all but was based on the pre-war DKW RT125.
