BSA Bantam Parts
BSA Bantam engines are a unit construction meaning the BSA engine and gearbox are manufactured as one piece single cylinder or two stroke. The BSA Bantam gearbox was originally three speed but later models went to four. The ignition would be either Lucas battery powered coil or a magneto by Wipac on later machines. Traditionally BSA Bantams had fish tail styled exhausts which were later followed by a more recognisable traditional cylinder silencer. There are also many BSA Bantams that have been modified to BSA Bantam racing machines designed to improve the BSA Bantam speed. Additionally, many Bantam enthusiasts have learnt how to build a BSA Bantam trials bike and make many customisations across the huge array of BSA Bantam models.
