Sammy Miller Museum Two Stroke Day

Without doubt, the most bizarre bike of the day, and one which I would have given anything to have a blast on, was a V-twin Bantam! The bike has been around for a while and was built as a sprinter by using two Bantam motors welded together in tandem, driving via the rear engine's original gearbox. There were plenty of people scratching their heads and asking 'how?' -- but the big question is 'why?' I never did find out the answer but I'm so glad there are still engineers around who are eccentric enough to embark on projects like this. The bike was fired up and Sammy took no time at all to grab the chance of a quick blast around the car park. Great stuff!
