Walwin Bantam

It was was conceived and built by brothers Ross and Mike Winwood and their dad in the mid-late 60s when they were employed in the British motorcycle industry and wanted to present a challenge to the Spanish factories, led by Bultaco, which were taking over trials at the time.The light, peppy, Bantam D14/4 175cc engine was chosen and slotted into the dural frame, all hand-crafted, literally screwed together, front forks are MPs a lovely bike, but never put into production.Keith Quinn's restored Walwin, what a great job he did, and I see that he's had some great results with it...
