So my mate claiming he has James Bonds bike ! Chapman frame number 007 could be right then ? (Only joking about the Bond bit.)

I have seen it a couple of times but its well hidden behind many other gems.

was anything on the bike bsa?

Would that matter? It was surely supposed to be a modern bike of its day. No arcane rules to be complied with in those times.

Sure it doesnt matter, couldnt remember the bike, wondered if the bsa bit had any significance?

Sorry ND, I misinterpreted your post as being a criticism of a "modded" British bike. It is a Bantam engined machine produced in the 70's - I remember seeing them at the Scottish.

Was the Bantam engine British ?

I may be a bit hazy on this,but I thought the Chapmans were built on a DT175MX Yam motor,same as the BSA Tracker ?
