See the light!

Quote PaddedHat: "Like everything from bike to neighborhood choices, life is nothing but a long series of compromises, the goal is try to get as close to your needs as possible and realize that there is always going to be a "shit I should of gotten that instead" moment. 
 Simply put, unless you want a small fleet of vehicles, you never cover all the bases./ Quote

Somehow this sums up a Bantam D14/4 to me.
 I hope you see the light!

Front number plate

Working on the front number plate!
In belgium, the front number plate was never required so it is just a design issue...
but in the uk : "since 1975 front plates for motorcycles are no longer required."

So if this bantam would be driving in the UK -> 1968 it would have got a front plate!

Blacksea

It all started for me with a little BSA Bantam at the age of twelve. It didn’t actually run (my friend and I found it dumped by an old railway track) but we had thrills pushing it up the hill and rolling down again whilst pretending to be Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper in ‘Easy Rider’ – I was Peter Fonda by the way (check out the shades).
Thanks to Bleacksea blog!

Bantam Cylinder Studs


Some of the reasons of the compression loss was the bad thread on the old cylinder studs.
After carefull remove the old one's i had to fix the last (broken) thread.
Drill all the junk out, some studs positioning and a finish with 2K epoxy will hold it.
Time will tell! :-)

UPDATE: IT DOES NOT!!! USE A HELICOIL!!!
