Bantam - Pointers, Mods, Advice?
Posted 26 February 2012 - 05:40 PM
I'm about ready to embark on my bantam trials machine. I've had her tucked away in the garage a good few years now. Someone has had a go at her before but a bit cowboy'esque !! She has what I believe are Montesa adjustable damping forks and wheel set up. With (somewhere) the swing arm and adapters to fit this also. But it doesn't seem entirely British, I'm all for using what works the best but I think I would like to keep it at least looking like it could have come out of the BSA factory.
So then questions....heaps of them if anyone could help. Just a few for now:
- Where do I start with frame mods, lifting the reas sub doesn't seam too difficult but I'm concerned with front end mods, as if you get it wrong the rake angle of the forks wouldn't work? Or is that a myth?
- Where does everyone buy all these trick looking exhausts and other similar stuff, half of the pictures I see make you think 'yep i want one' but not something you ever see for sale.
- Do I scrap the standard rear wheel arrangement?
Many thanks in advance guys,

I think the term is "bespoke".
and search for other Bantam posts; I put these on another Bantam thread and others have posted many images also:

With evolution and modern technology they can be usable, no use polishing them and looking at them.
clever, i never saw bantams like these, they were a joke in my day,
