The BSA Bantam, was the bike that started my long love for motorcycles - an old school buddy stopped by our house in 1954 with the Trials version - and I was hooked.  Although I never owned a Bantam - BSA sold a ton of them, and they were also used by the British Post Office for delivering mail.

While the original purchase price was about 100 pounds stirling - this restored beauty, recently sold for 2,200 pounds in the UK  !!! And to think I gave away some of my “Classics”

Another Bantam - this one being very much tricked up, and ridden in the Scottish Pre 65, by Former World Champion Yrjo Vesterinen.
