Manufactured by the Birmingham Small Arms Company (BSA) from 1948 until 1971, the BSA Bantam was produced in vast numbers and in many forms over the years. Most bikers of a certain age will have owned or ridden one during their lifetime and they continue to be a popular lightweight two stroke machine.

This BSA Bantam D7 was registered in September 1965 and has been sat in the vendors private collection for some fourteen years.

Yes, of course he intended to get the bike back on the road, but time just ran away with him and here we are today offering it in exactly the same condition that he acquired it. A shame really, as in his own words “it’ll only take someone a day to sort it”.

As you can see, the previous owner dealt with all the expensive bits; powder coating the frame, refurbing the tank, fitting new tyres, etc.

A new wiring loom has been fitted but yet to be connected, an easy enough job if you’re in the know. The BSA Bantam also requires a new battery. The vendor has never had the machine running but assures us that it has good compression.

Please study the photographs, you’ll see a dent in the exhaust, a switch missing from the headlight and a slight repair needed to the seat. You’ll also see that this handsome 175cc really isn’t going to take too much to bring it back to its former glory, the hard work has been done.

Sensibly reserved to find the new lease of life it has been waiting so long for.

Good luck bidding! Please remember, our site uses anti-sniping software which ensures fairness to all bidders. So, if a bid for a lot is received in the last minute, the auction will go into a 2-minute overtime period for each subsequent bid.

Bike Location: Pickering, North Yorkshire YO18 – it’s the responsibility of the buyer to make collection / transportation arrangements directly with the vendor.

Guide Prices?

We’re different. But you know that. And we’re always honest. In a sector where no two classics are same, how does anyone put a ‘guide’.

Well, everyone knows the broad value of classic, let’s all be honest. So we don’t need to tell you what you already know, do we.

The ‘market’ decides and the old cliché that ‘it’s worth what someone wants to pay’ is no less true. So why kid everyone!

But, because we are different, if it really does matter to you, that’s fine, we want you to be happy. Just drop us a line at auction@evoke-classics.com and one of us will be delighted to ring you back and discuss, it’s what we do.

Tedious but it’s vital you read this, please.

We will always strive to offer the most descriptive and transparent auction listings available. However, we can’t claim to be perfect. Your own analysis is very important and we are here to help and also answer any and all queries you may have prior to purchase.

We offer and positively encourage buyers to view, or arrange inspections for each vehicle thoroughly prior to bidding.

If we do take a physical, as opposed to a remote, look at any of the vehicles on our platform, they are not those of a qualified vehicle inspector or other professional. Nor do they include a test drive unless expressly stated.

As with all vehicles of a certain age, localised paint repairs are common. This specifically applies with classics.

So, please, unless we state explicitly to the contrary, please assume that classic vehicles on our platform could have had remedial bodywork of any kind at some point in its life.

Two final comments on images and photos.

The vast majority are supplied by vendors. Camera technology has and continues to improve significantly, but please note and understand that image and sound quality does vary. If you would like vendors to provide more images please ask us and we will contact the vendor for you.

If you are at all unsure, just ask us. It is what we are here for.

Finally, finally, finally. Please note that vehicles are sold as seen and a returns policy is not applicable. This is the norm for used items acquired at auction.
