Despite the Bantam being considered the archetypal ‘truly British’ lightweight motorcycle outselling all others, it was in fact based on a German design. The Bantam was based on the DKW RT 125, a design that was received as war reparations, with the Bantam as a mirror image so the gearchange was on the right side as with other British motorcycles of the period. Our repair manual for the BSA Bantam repair manual is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your motorcycle.
